JENNA RAUCH - BHPE, CAT(C), CSCSAthletic Therapist - Titan Level 2 Performance Coach
Born and raised in Smithers, BC, Jenna grew up dancing competitively and playing every sport she could including volleyball, basketball, rugby, and track and field. She knew from a young age that she wanted a sports-related career and when she took a sports performance class in high school, she also realized how much she loved strength and conditioning.
Jenna completed a 4-year bachelor’s degree in Health and Physical Education with a Major in Athletic Therapy from Mount Royal University. During her time at university she worked with the University of Calgary football, wrestling, cross-country, and track and field teams, as well as Mount Royal University’s women’s hockey team. Jenna has also worked with rugby, rhythmic gymnastics, and bull riding. In her last semester of schooling she interned at Peak Power Sport Development as a student strength and conditioning coach. Jenna learnt about Olympic lifting at Peak Power and hopes to include these lifts into programs for clients where it is suitable. Jenna has won multiple awards throughout her time as an athletic therapy student including the MedWest Field award from the University of Calgary in 2019, the MRU Athletic Therapy Student Clinic Award in 2020, and the CATA MRU Student Leadership Award for 2020 as well.
Upon completion of her degree, Jenna worked for Precision Sports Therapy in Calgary, but always knew she wanted to come back home to BC to open up her own clinic.
Jenna loves to be outdoors in anyway she can. In the winter she loves to snowmobile, cross-country ski, and snowshoe. In the summer she enjoys hiking, camping, and canoeing. She enjoys staying active through strength training, running, and plenty of yoga. Her treatment plans and rehab programs reflect this and are very exercise-based. What Jenna loves about athletic therapy and strength and conditioning is how she can help people move better to subsequently feel better. She aims to not only help her patients recover from their injuries, but return them to doing what they love in a condition better than before so they will not reinjure themselves. Her experience playing and working with a variety of different sports gives her the adaptability to work with anyone, athletes and non-athletes alike!
