Born in England, Matthew Turner ’13 D’15 had immigrated to Canada to play Junior A hockey when he was recruited as a goalie by LVC’s hockey coach, Ted Russell. Turner was impressed not only with LVC’s hockey program and its academic offerings, but its strong sense of community. “What sealed the deal for me was the combination of competitive hockey and the strength of the physical therapy program,” he says. “And after having met the guys on the team, the administrators, and the professors, I got the feeling that people were genuinely interested in my development not only as an athlete or student, but more importantly, as a person.”

Turner graduated last spring with a bachelor’s degree in health science and will stay on at LVC another two years to earn his doctorate in physical therapy. The goalie has been active in leading LVC’s ice hockey program’s Wounded Warrior Project, and has participated in research regarding gender difference and social support in compliance of injured college athletes. He credits his international background for broadening his horizons: “Having attended high school in beautiful Penticton, British Columbia, Canada, as well as my native England, I feel that my experiences help set me up for success here at LVC,” he says. “The amount of diversity I’ve experienced by attending schools on two different continents opened my horizon and perspectives to the world.”

Recently engaged, Turner and Rachael Hoffman ’13, D’15 are exploring where they’d like to live after graduation. “The exciting thing about graduating with a doctor of physical therapy degree is that the possibilities are endless regarding where we can work, and what area we find interest in and want to specialize in,” Turner says. “We both feel like the DPT program here at LVC sets us up for success no matter where we end up.”
