Stef Moser played a significant role in the transition of the OATA Board into a high-performance, professional association through past executive roles at a pivotal time for the profession as it approached a renewed pursuit of regulation within an RHPA College.
Stef’s leadership shifted management of the association into a high performance Board founded on strong governance principles while she championed the government mandated move to new by-laws and new incorporation to be ready for the Ontario proposed Not-for-Profit Corporations Act. Stef championed over a dozen new Board Policy documents relevant to best practices in Board accountability relevant to the terms and spirit of the by-laws.
As the OATA Director for Private Practice, prior to becoming Board Chair, Stef led a team to generate data so the AT profession could participate in the collection of professional health outcomes measurement captured in programs of care. As a leading Ontario clinic owner, Stef engaged with a sports medicine doctor in a published research paper dealing with concussions. Bold, innovative, quick to lead and always at the forefront of challenges and opportunities to advance the profession, Stef made a tremendous contribution as Board Director and as a model clinical practice owner. Stef is well known regionally and nationally for her work with elite, competitive athletes including two PanAm Games and multiple World Championships for hockey and trampoline. Stef is at the Tokyo Olympics now.
Stef Moser was at the helm of the OATA as the profession began reaching out to various rehab professional regulatory colleges and associations to take advantage of the last opportunity – RHPA ‘grandparenting’ – to find a home for the AT profession within a regulatory college of like-minded health care professionals. Once the CKO was established as the best option, Stef worked diligently with the Association’s GR team laying the ground work for what became the specialty/class option. Breakthrough thinking and breakthrough results can be attributed in large part to Stef’s leadership.
If all of that were not enough following her dedication to advancing the AT profession as a Board Director, she ran for election to the CKO Council where she served admirably as a Professional Council Member.
