Portage College Voyageurs Athletic Department would like to announce the hiring of Marisa Sheppard to the department as our Athletic Therapist.
Marisa is from Ancaster, Ontarion and played NCAA Division III hockey while studying at Adrian College in Adrian, Michigan. She received her Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science in 2018 and her Master of Science in Athletic Training in 2019.
"We are excited to hire Marisa to join our Athletic Department and work with our student-athletes. She is going to be a valuable piece of our teams to ensure they have the best care and are able to compete at the highest level possible. Having Marisa as a former student-athlete also helps as she understand the demands on the student-athletes when it comes to the balance of rest, training, competition, traveling and academics. She has experience with working all kinds of sports teams so this is a great fit for our student-athletes."
Marisa will be arriving on August 1st to start working with the Voyageurs Soccer teams as they start their training in Lac La Biche.
Welcome to the Voyageurs, Marisa.
