Meet Kips Managment Team

Aisha has been a member of the CKGC staff since 2014, although her experience here dates back to 1993 when she began as an athlete in the KinderGym program, training here for the majority of her national and international career as a member of Canada’s National Team.  She went on to earn a degree at UCLA, on full athletic scholarship, and describes winning a National Championship alongside her teammates in 2010, as the highlight of her athletic career.  Through her two decade journey in this sport she has developed a passion for hard work, commitment, and respect.  Having been a part of Kips for so many years, she brings a longstanding knowledge of what this organization represents, and all that it is capable of being.  She believes that success is achieved through the efforts of a team who plays to their individual strengths, working towards a united vision.
