Meet Kelly McDermid, RMT

November 30, 2021 | Massage, Meet the Team, What's New

I have been at CURAVITA Glebe since October 2021. What I like best about working at CURAVITA is the professional, kind, and supportive staff. 

   Outside of work I read a lot. Some of my favourite authors are Dostoevsky, Tolkein, Dickens, Terry Pratchett and Hunter S. Thompson. My favourite book is probably ‘The Master and Margarita’ by Mikhail Bulgakov. I also like to play the piano and enjoy listening to mainly 90’s alternative such as Alice in Chains, Manic Street Preachers, and Pearl Jam. But I can listen to everything from classical to punk. My favourite TV shows are American Horror Story, Seinfeld, and Arrested Development. A movie I have seen many times is the Lord of the Rings trilogy, I even went to visit New Zealand because of the movie! 

   For my last holiday, I went to Rome and as travel becomes more accessible I want to go to Germany, Austria, Hungary, and Poland. 

  Ottawa has been my home for most of my life, besides a year for school. I completed an Honours BA in Psychology at the University of Ottawa before attending Algonquin College for Massage Therapy. In the Ottawa area, I like to walk, wander, and bike going to the National Art Centre, museums, and galleries, or sit in a coffee shop and read. I love animals and support various shelters and rescue organizations in Canada and around the world.
