Ms. Melissa Chubb

Good day! My name is Melissa, I am the smiling face you will see when you arrive at reception at Kinetic Health. You will also have a chance to chat with me as I assist the Doctors with your treatments.

I moved to Calgary in 1999 from Whitehorse, Yukon, where I was born and raised. I attained training in Emergency Medicine at Southern Alberta Institute of Technology, up to the level of Emergency Medical Technician - Ambulance level. After working in Emergency Medicine for 5 years, I decided to explore different health care avenues to help me decide where my future carrier in healthcare would lie. My career plan includes obtaining a Degree in Nursing and eventually moving on to obtaining a Medical Degree specializing in Geriatrics.

Feel free to ask me any questions you may have, as I am well versed in the details of our practice. I look forward to meeting you and assisting you on your path to wellness.
