A Letter to Steve Moerman:

Steve Moerman: Previous SPC-MB Executive Chair


I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Steve Moerman for his seven years of service on the Sport Physiotherapy Canada Manitoba Section executive council. This fall, Steve stepped down from the executive chair role in order to pursue his Master’s of Clinical Science in Manipulative Therapy at the University of Western Ontario.


Steve has been a mentor for me in more ways than one. As a clinical supervisor, Steve took me on during my final student placement. I am lucky enough to now work alongside him at Pure Lifestyle, where he continually challenges me to grow as a clinician. During my clinical placement, Steve inspired me to join the Sport Physiotherapy council. Last year, I was able to witness his organizational leadership qualities shine through as he guided the council to achieve a number of important milestones.


I have the fortunate opportunity to take over where Steve left off by adopting his previous role as Chairperson. While this task seemed daunting at first, Steve has continued to assist in a consultative role since stepping down and has made the transition seamless (at least for now)!


I speak for the entire Sport Physiotherapy community in Manitoba in saying thank-you to Steve for his invaluable years of leadership.

Dear Sport Physiotherapy Manitoba Members,

Thank you to the Executive and the membership for honouring me with the inaugural SPC Membership Award. I was very moved and humbled by this recognition. Becoming a sports physiotherapist and my community and professional involvement was a labour of love and very fulfilling in itself. So, being recognized with this award is overwhelming. Hopefully my involvement gives you motivation to continue to be involved yourselves and to have a blast doing it like I did.Sincerely,
