To introduce myself, I am Lindsey Kaupp - full-time mother, wife and occupational therapist residing in Ponoka, AB.
I am a education-hoarder and always have a continuing education course on the go.
If I wasn't an occupational therapist I would love to be in real estate or architectural design in some fashion. When I walk into a space I can see it for its potential and I feel I am the same way with people. I try to look for the good in the world and enjoy my life as it flies by, however I could definitely benefit from a slow motion button that would force me to spend more time in the moment and not look so far ahead all the time.
Hockey is a passion of mine and I have met so many of the people in my life through sport. As a student-athlete with the University of Lethbridge Women's Hockey team, I thrived on the team atmosphere and community of athletes, coaches and support staff. This has translated into a passion for connecting with other professionals with similar interests and trying to be involved with young female athletes whenever possible.
My journey in women's health has come about in a non-conventional way, through my lived experience with pelvic health dysfunction, and my unexpected career in mental health. I am an anatomy and movement geek at heart, so employment in mental health was never a goal of mine, until it happened. The years I have spent in mental health have been the most rewarding time of my career thus far and has prepared me to work with women from all walks of life, with all different issues and solutions.
E-Motion Therapy was created out of my recognition of a gap, not only regarding women's health services in rural Alberta, but within women's health services themselves. As an occupational therapist, I can address the vast majority of the factors that impact a woman's pelvic health and daily life, such as physical function, psychological factors and environmental influences, which enables a truly holistic and individual approach. I am comfortable asking the hard questions around topics that we are working hard to de-stigmatize such as sexual function or maternal mental health.
In short, I want to be the resource that was not available to me when I needed it and I know I am not alone in seeking quality whole-person care regarding women's health in rural Alberta.
