Brett is in his final year of his DPT program at Pacific University in Hillsboro, Oregon. He is loving his practical work in each of his clinics. He feels he will be well-prepared for the real world. In spring 2013, he will be Doctor Brett Bousquet.
He will be writing the Board exams in July and with successful results will begin his new career as a Physiotherapist. His plan is work in a variety of settings on temporary placements throughout the US for at least a year. He will return to Canada to write the equivalent Canadian exams, and hopefully settle into a career either in Calgary or Kelowna. Between now and then, there are many experiences to be had, and he may very well follow one of them to a new destination.
Brett graduated in May 2010 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Excercise Science at Pacific University in Forsest Grove, Oregon. He is now continuing his studies at Pacific at the post-graduate level, expecting to earn his Doctorate of Physical Therapy in 2013. He will then be Doctor Brett Bousquet!
Brett has gone viral with his Physiotherapy video, and carried across the state in the newspaper article about his work:

If he doesn't make it as a doctor, he might make it as a rapper!
Brett's take is that living an hour from Mount Hood's famous ski resorts, and an hour from Oregon's white sandy beaches is a whole lot more enticing than battling snow and freezing temperatures in Calgary. Brett is living his dream!
Since July 2008 he has been on the mend from a baseball injury which saw him tear his ACL and MCL. Successful surgery has just taken place, and his is relying heavily upon physiotherapy to get him back into baseball ready condition. He has been a major contributor this year to his team, as he completes his final undergrad year at school. He graduates in May.
Brett is a fine product of the Lake Sundance community, having spent his best years growing up on the lake, attending Father Whelihan Elementary and Junior High School, and graduating from Bishop O'Byrne High School. Brett has always loved baseball, and has put his heart and soul into the game, maximizing the programs through CalSouth Little League, ABA's Calgary Cubs, and the Babe Ruth Dodgers. Brett was on the Babe Ruth Blues championship team that won the Babe Ruth World Series in 2006 in Newark, Ohio, coached by Darwin Kraft, Brian Hanes and Neil Bousquet.
