Speakers

Jessie Wong graduated from UBC and has been working in private practice as a physiotherapist since 2011. She is a partner of several Myodetox locations in Vancouver and is currently the Regional Director of Myodetox Vancouver. Jessie helps lead the operations and development in Vancouver with a team that is expanding to 100+. As a team leader, Jessie is passionate about representation and inclusion in the growing workplace.

Dr. Kevin Marryshow is a 2012 graduate of New York's Chiropractic College. He has been in private practice for eight years now and is currently the Acting Toronto Regional Director of Myodetox. Myodetox is a lifestyle therapy brand with multidisciplinary clinics across Toronto, Vancouver, and California. As a health care provider from the Black community, Dr. Marryshow has recognized the lack of representation of the BBIPOC community in therapy. Dr. Marryshow and his team at Myodetox have since launched the Myodetox Emerging Leaders Scholarship Program. This program’s purpose is to educate and create access that helps Black leaders in the therapy space create a better future.
