Leticia Janzen

Leticia Janzen is a Knowledge Translation and Research Coordinator for the Calgary Adapted Hub (CAH) and the Vi Riddell Pediatric Rehabilitation Research Program. She completed her Bachelors of Kinesiology at the University of Calgary followed by a Masters of Science at the University of Calgary with the Vi Riddell Pediatric Rehabilitation Research Program. Leticia began working as a Research Assistant in 2013 with her work focusing on the evaluation of physical contact and body checking in youth ice hockey. Her MSc thesis work was focused on a comparison of physical activity, strength, balance, and body composition in youth with cerebral palsy and their typically developing peers. Working with the CAH gives Leticia the opportunity to support the continued development of sport and recreation opportunities for everyone. Outside of her work with the team, Leticia enjoys playing soccer and hockey, camping, gardening, and coaching sledge hockey and challenger baseball.
