Cheryl Christmas – Clinic Manager

Cheryl comes to us via Cape Breton, with a few stops along the way. She has been with The Lakes since the doors opened in 2008 in the role of Manager and our “go to” person. Cheryl is a jack of all trades within our clinic, lending a hand wherever it is needed. When she is not here in the clinic Cheryl and her husband, Shane, can often be found at the local rink or rugby pitch. They are the proud parents of a son, Hunter and a daughter, Sage,  who keep them busy and active.
