Chrystalla Paleshi, accredited music therapist with the Canadian Association of Music Therapists - Chrystalla holds a bachelor’s degree in Music Therapy from Wilfrid Laurier University, as well as a master’s degree in Music and Health Science with a Collaborative Program in Neuroscience from the University of Toronto. Chrystalla has also completed Neurologic Music Therapy training with an emphasis on balancing an evidence-based, quantitative approach with one that is client-centered and qualitative. She enjoys incorporating empathy and humour into every session and sharing how music therapy can help address freezing, gait, falls, coordination, swallowing, and speech.
Michelle Davis, Community Engagement Specialist with Spectrum Cannabis, the medcal cannabis division of Canopy Growth Corp. - Michelle educates and builds meaningful relationships with patient organizations, caregivers, social services providers and more, furthering the public's understanding of quality medical cannabis products, services and therapeutic applications. She holds a Bachelor's Degree in Biological Science and has experience within the company working as a grower previous to community engagement.

Verna Johnson, Alexander Technique teacher - Verna is a certified Alexander Technique teacher (Society of Teachers of the Alexander Technique). Since 1983, Verna has helped clients rediscover their body’s natural poise, movement, and strength through the Alexander Technique. She works with clients to identify habitual patterns of use and work towards eliminating habits that interfere with optimal functioning. Through guided movements, students become aware of how much extra effort they add to even the most simple and natural movements. Consistent study and practice helps students rediscover their natural physical alignment, which can lead to the release of both physical and mental stress.
