Hailing from Ontario, Ryan relocated to Vancouver to take on the role of Leader for CONNECT Partners. With a background in recreation therapy, Ryan is passionate about helping people find joy in their everyday and is excited to lead the CONNECT Partners team of coaches to make lives better.
Having worked in long term care settings in the past, Ryan is excited about bringing the Life Redesign Model to people with more complex care needs. In his spare time Ryan enjoys playing basketball (not jumping as high as he used to) and making music. Most importantly he enjoys building strong and lasting relationships with people. He hopes to bring his sense of humour, compassion, and leadership to Cambie Gardens as we build a special living environment.
“Cambie Gardens is a unique living environment that will push the people we support to be as independent as possible, while re-integrating into their communities. It’s an amazing opportunity to be a part of a project and organization like CONNECT Partners that is viewing health care in a progressive way.”
