About Jena FraserJena has been a Registered Massage Therapist and practicing Strength and Conditioning Coach since 2010. Her foundational values for rehabilitation stem from the Model of Regional Interdependence – “a concept that seemingly unrelated impairments in a remote anatomical region may contribute to, or be associated with, the patient’s primary complaint”. Integrating movement education with manual therapy, Jena enjoys creatively problem solving dysfunctions which limit performance in sport and activity. While attending university, Jena worked for 3 years as the Athletic Trainer for the UBC Women’s Ice Hockey team, where she realized her passion for manual therapy and high level sports conditioning. Since then, Jena has worked with Provincial Figure Skaters, National Women’s Soccer team, NHL players, and Senior PGA golfers. Jena earned a Bachelors Degree in Human Kinetics (Exercise Science stream) from the University of British Columbia in 2008, and continued on to complete a Diploma of Massage Therapy from the West Coast Collage of Massage Therapy in 2010. After graduation, Jena was licensed by the College of Massage Therapy of British Columbia (CMTBC) as a Registered Massage Therapist, and certified by the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) as a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist. Jena places high value in continuing education and learning the subtleties of the human body and its mechanics. She has industriously attended courses for manual therapy, anatomy/physiology and strength conditioning. Currently, Jena is studying Osteopathy at the Canadian School of Osteopathy Manual Practice.

Since then, she has been sought by athletes, academics, office workers, and construction workers to help them restore optimal health and performance.

With such experience, Angela strongly values working in an environment with a variety of practitioners all unified by common principles.

Currently, she is preparing for her thesis and entering into her fifth and final year of Osteopathy at the Canadian School of Osteopathy in Vancouver.
Registered Holistic Nutritionist
About Connie SearsHello! I’m so excited to be able to say that I’m the resident Holistic Nutritionist R.H.N. here at Function Health Club and wanted to start by saying that I LOVE food and physical activity! I was a ballerina from age 3 to 16 and played a variety of sports all through grade school, soccer being a favourite. I learned that eating properly was a key element in having enough energy to keep up with my active lifestyle. Plus, I love eating and eating delicious foods. My interest in nutrition really began due to being lactose intolerant and learning about how to avoid certain foods. I began reading labels from a young age and started to understand what goes into the foods we eat. That led to a life-long interest in eating the best way for my body’s needs. As an adult and a vegetarian, I started to see just how important food is in keeping us happy and healthy. That led me obtaining my certification, so I could gain more understanding and share the things I’d learned with others. I believe in eating for balance and giving your body what it needs to function at its best. I’m here to support you with any healthy goals you may have, using an informative and positive approach. I look forward to working with you!
