Brienne received an Honors BSc in Biomedical Science from the University of Guelph. Following graduation, she moved to Vancouver to join the Canadian Women’s Field Hockey Team where she competed on the international stage at several Pan American Games, Commonwealth Games and World Cup.
Years of playing high-performance sport inspired Brienne to pursue a MSc in Human Health and Nutritional Sciences. Her research in hypoxic sprint training was presented at a national conference while her work on post-glucose metabolic and vascular function led to a peer-reviewed publication.
Beyond her research, Brienne was heavily involved at the University of Guelph both as a varsity field hockey coach and as a teaching assistant to university undergraduate courses in Health Sciences. From these experiences, she realized her strength in communication and her passion for continued learning and scientific education. This led her to seek a position at MEDUCOM.
In her spare time, Brienne can be found by the lake at her family cottage, travelling the globe, playing sports or immersed in a good book or puzzle.
