Scott Stevens, B.Sc., M.A., R. Kin
Manager, Centre

I have had the privilege of working at the Brock-Niagara Centre for Health and Well-Being since July of 2013. My previous work experience was as a Kinesiologist at the Shaver Hospital for 11 years within the orthopedic and neurological units. I was attracted to the position at Brock to help individuals with their fitness goals and work on the preventative side of medicine.

Outside of work, I enjoy swimming, cycling, running and spending time with my family.

Justin Parro, B.Sc., M.Sc., R. Kin
Coordinator, Centre

I have enjoyed working at the Brock-Niagara Centre for Health and Well-Being since December 2014. My time at Brock expands much further back as I have completed an undergraduate degree in the Department of Kinesiology and a Masters degree within the Faculty of Applied Health Sciences. I currently operate and coach at Crossfit St. Catharines. I have always been a competitive athlete in baseball (4 years with the Brock Badgers), hockey, and now Crossfit. I also work for the Toronto Blue Jays in their community outreach program with the amateur baseball academy.

This current opportunity with the Brock-Niagara Centre for Health and Well-Being is extremely rewarding as I have a role in the growth of this unique Centre that reaches out to the Niagara community in so many ways, helping various populations in the pursuit of good health and improved quality of life.
