Sue Safadi

I grew up in London, Ontario where I began my “triathalon” of post secondary degrees. I completed a BMSc in Biochemistry from UWO, MSc in Physiotherapy from McMaster, and a PhD at Western where we worked on the genetic links to Parkinson’s Disease. I lived in Vancouver for a few years where I completed my postdoctoral studies at UBC. I have been fortunate over this time to have run with several different running groups including New Balance London, Runners’ Choice London, Forerunners (Vancouver) and Runner’s Den (Hamilton).  I am currently working as a Registered Physiotherapist at Meridian Spine and Joint in London and Strathroy and on the weekends, I spend time working for the New Balance London team. I’m an avid runner and race distances from 5k to marathon. I have published 8 articles in peer reviewed journals and I even have a publication in Running Room Magazine 🙂 I have advanced physiotherapy training in running injury prevention, acupuncture, manual therapy and kinesio taping.
