Dance across time with the unique career story of dancer, entrepreneur, body builder and rehabilitation therapist, Kristin Haight. At a critical turning point Kirstin accessed career counselling to help her identify her key skills and interests, link them to career possibilities and help her make a well informed choice.
She’s made many choices. After a lengthy career as a professional dancer in Winnipeg, mentored by the dance trailblazer Rachel Browne, a foot injury led Kristin to her first career change. Since then she’s made diverse career choices that have led her into filmmaking, personal training, dance instructing, body building and now, into rehab therapy. She was even named Ms. Figure Manitoba in 2019. Of these many twists and turns and career choices, Kristin says “Any decision I’ve made has come true.” She now works at a rehabilitation therapy assistant which she calls “soul filling work”.
