Gillian Chan, Laser Technician

Laser Technician Gillian Chan

Gillian was born in Mauritius, a tiny island in the Indian Ocean. She was very active in school, being both a former music and art student, she was also part of her school’s volleyball team.  When her mother began suffering from chronic knee pain and started seeing a local physiotherapist, Gillian was introduced to a different side of human movement and discovered her interest for rehabilitation.

She started her Bachelor’s Degree in Kinesiology at Memorial University of Newfoundland in 2018, which she recently completed in May 2022.  She is now focused on exploring the many professions within the field of human movement so as to increase her understanding and knowledge of the human body and how it operates.

She came across Avalon Laser Health Clinic while looking up online for opportunities to start her career path in St John’s. Like most, she had very limited knowledge on laser and its use in the medical field.  Learning more about this innovative approach to rehabilitation has encouraged her to apply to join our team.  She has since completed her certification in September 2022 and is now a laser technician at our clinic.

She intends on pursuing further studies and do a Master’s Degree in Occupational Therapy
