was recognized for her contributions to the MTAM and the profession during her
term of office as a Director and President of the association. She served from
2005 - 2011 in many capacities.
According to Kos-Whicher, “Sue graduated from nursing in 1993,
specializing in Geriatric and Orthopedic medical care. In 1997 she began her
training in massage therapy specializing in sports massage rehabilitation. As a
massage therapist she became a graduate of the Dr. Vodder School, receiving
full certification in the treatment and management of lymphedema.
“Sue is involved with the establishment and promotion of the newly
developed Lymphedema Association of Manitoba (LAM). She recognizes the
need for this health service in the community and will focus her attention on
the unmet needs of this disease within the provincial health care system.
“She has been a relentless advocate for legislation and regulation
of the profession knowing there remains lots of planning and implementation
before the final goal is reached. Sue is the chair of the legislative
committee, and has provided critical focus to the application process now
underway. She will continue to assist in the legislative process, and I am sure
she will be a player in the future regulatory college structure too.”
