Bill is also a personal trainer registered with BCRPA as well as an instructor for Older Adult and Osteofit classes in several Vancouver locations.
He and Melanie met at Saint Andrews University in Scotland, where he completed a Master's degree.
From there they moved to Queen’s University in Kingston Ontario, where he obtained a PhD in Psychology. His thesis was on sleep studies and his interest was in the biological basis of behaviour.
Never a natural athlete, Bill still realised that he had to keep moving. In university and for the decades following he has been a runner, covering in ten to 15 kilometres weekly along the local trails.
He also pushes himself at resistance training, knowing that muscle loss is a common problem of aging; "banking” more muscle when healthy offers some insurance towards wellness with age.
Since 2012 Bill developed a keen interest in Cardio-pulmonary-vascular functions. He is a member of the BACPR and has completed their standards and core components e-learning module.
