The Ausome Team
Liisa is one of the founders of Ausome.
She brings her 15 years of experience in the health care field and a background in physical education and fitness to Ausome.
Anna is a caring, energetic, skilled, autism behaviour therapist with years of clinical intervention experience.
Julia is a freelance graphic designer, former teacher, and mom of 3 kids and two feline fur-babies.
Rebecca joins the Ausome team with an enthusiasm that rivals that of a child with a lollipop.
Alix has been apart of our Ausome Ottawa Team from the beginning. She started out as an Ausome Volunteer, supporting the children and the volunteers during every event.
Rachelle first got involved with Ausome as a volunteer in 2016 while completing the post-graduate certificate in Autism and Behavioural Sciences at Algonquin College.
She has always worked with children in various settings and truly believes that every child can accomplish their full potential given the proper support and resources. Originally from Saskatchewan, Rachelle transferred to the University of Ottawa in 2011 to complete her B.A with specialization in psychology and linguistics. Rachelle currently works as an Instructor Therapist in a center that provides ABA/IBI services to children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder and tutors students with various learning difficulties during her evenings. When she is not working Rachelle loves staying active by playing various sports and discovering new hiking trails in the surrounding areas or she’s planning her next travelling adventure.
Kayla is studying Biomedical Sciences at the University of Ottawa and is on a journey to becoming a pediatric surgeon.
Katie has been with Ausome Ottawa since inception in 2016. She attended almost every program in the first year!
Her love for kids, passion for helping others (She’s also a nurse!) and energetic, out-going, organized personality brings a lot to our Ausome Team. Whatever the task, Katie is usually the one to (happily) step up to the plate and help out! She’s also the other half of one of our dedicated coaches, Kyle Skinner from Dynes Sports Management. They’re a husband and wife duo that bring so much AUSOMENESS to our team.
