Stephanie Carson developed a true interest in preventative health after learning about the science of human health and the role lifestyle plays on health outcomes while completing her Bachelor of Health Science at the University of Ottawa. She began to look at physical activity, nutrition and healthy living as an investment, a proactive solution that can help reduce the burden of chronic lifestyle-related diseases and ultimately help improve quality of life. She moved on to pursue a Master of Science in Human Health and Nutritional Science at the University of Guelph. After completing her graduate degree she began working as a Clinical Researcher with the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute where she gained experience over the years as a Research Assistant, a Research Coordinator and a Research Manager. Stephanie is now working under Mark Tremblay as a Research Coordinator working on various projects including the SUNRISE Pilot Study and the Forest and Nature School Study. She is also working with the Outdoor Play Canada Leadership Group, the Child and Nature Alliance of Canada, and ParticipACTION. Stephanie loves to be active, warm weather, farmers markets and a fresh day planner. She is a very passionate health and wellness advocate who aims to inspire others in the community to live a healthy lifestyle.
