Hey, I’m Kent, co-owner of Symmetrix Exercise & Rehab. I run operations and help manage the team Symmetrix team. My current focus is developing our Ergonomics program.
My professional background is in geology. I have an MSc. from McGill, after about 10 years in mining exploration I worked for small exploration companies and mega mines, from Australia to Alaska with a long stint in the Democratic Republic of Congo. I was managing teams, camps and drill projects in remote places. Geology took me all around the world.
Back in Vancouver I established a fundraising team in the city for an environmental and did some fundraising for a transporation charity. I grew fundraising teams and helped develop charities fundraising by building teams, throwing events and running digital campaigns. But after a couple years in the nonprofit sector I was ready for a bigger challenge.
Dasha have run Symmetrix since 2018. Today we’ve got a team of 10 and continue to attract and retain talented therapists and admin staff. I’m so proud that Symmetrix was voted best kinesiology studio for 2022 and that my business partner Dasha won Kinesiology of the Year in 2022. We also maintain B-Corp certification and a 5-star Google review average.
When I’m not running Symmetrix I’m among my plants, DJing for friends or baking a loaf of bread. I’ve kayaked Clayoquot sound and cycled from Vancouver to Loreto, Mexico, and love touring and travelling in general. I feel so fortunate to live 3 blocks from where I grew up in East Van with my fiancee Mary.
