Meet your Board of Directors - Stewart Munroe

Stewart W. Munroe, BSc, CAT(C)
Atlantic Provinces Director

Rothesay, New Brunswick

What year did you become a Certified Athletic Therapist?

Educational Experiences
I graduated from Acadia University with a Bachelor of Science in 1995. Following my undergraduate degree, I moved on to Sheridan College graduating with a Diploma in Sports Injury Management in 1999. I became a Certified Athletic Therapist later that year.

Place of Employment
I run a private clinic in my hometown with my wife. The clinic, Ken Val Rehab & Sports Injury Centre Inc., opened in the fall of 2001. We treat of full variety of orthopedic injuries ranging from acute MSK injuries to chronic MSK injuries, pre and post joint arthroplasty of the knees, hip and shoulder, as well as pre and post surgical repairs of the spine, shoulder, hip and knee. This is our 8th year of helping with our local QMJHL team, the Saint John SeaDogs. We also have a small clinic at a local private school, Rothesay Netherwood School, in which we provide assessments and treatments of orthopedic injuries when they happen.

Board experience and current mandates
I initially joined the CATA Board of Directors in 2005. I served 2 ½ years. I have recently rejoined the Board of Directors taking on the role of Atlantic Provinces Director. My current mandates include liaising with the International Relations Committee (IRC), Marketing Sponsorship and Insurance Committee (MSIC), as well as the Canadian College of Athletic Therapy (CCAT).

Current and previous committee experience
Over the years I have had the opportunity to be involved with our Ethics Committee as well as be involved with the Atlantic Provinces Insurance Committee.

Personal information
I am currently living in my hometown of Rothesay NB with my wife Glenda. We have a 7-year-old son, Kehlan, who is active with hockey and loves to build with Lego. My recreational activities include house renovations and woodworking. However, after nearly amputating the DIP joint of the 3rd digit of my left hand earlier this Fall on my miter saw, I may need to consider a new recreational activity.
