Voyageurs Announce hiring of Athletic Therapist Marisa Sheppard

Portage College Voyageurs Athletic Department is pleased to announce the hiring of Marisa Sheppard as our Athletic Therapist.

Marisa is from Ancaster, Ontario. She 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 to work with our student-athletes." Coach Claude Bolton adds that Marisa will be invaluable, making sure our teams have the best care and are able to compete at the highest level possible. "Marisa is a former student-athlete so she understands the demands on the student-athletes when it comes to the balance of rest, training, competition, traveling and academics. She has experience working with all kinds of sports teams so this is a great fit for our student-athletes."

Marisa will work alongside our Voyageurs Soccer teams during their training in Lac La Biche. 

Welcome to the Voyageurs, Marisa!
