Beth Barberree is an entrepreneur and business owner in Edgemont, NW Calgary. A qualified Massage Therapist since 1995, followed with a BA in Psychology from the University of Calgary, Beth is currently completing a Masters in Leadership Studies with a health specialization at Royal Roads University.
She and her team work closely with other healthcare professionals, serving the NW and local neighborhoods with impeccable, outcome-oriented therapeutic massage. Beth has been a constant advocate for developing and maintaining the highest standards of patient centered care in both her practice and the massage therapy profession.
Beth has served on provincial and national Boards both as President and Director for the Massage Therapist Association of Alberta (MTAA), and Director for the Canadian Massage Therapist Alliance. As President, Beth chaired the application process to enable massage therapy to be regulated under the Alberta Health Professions Act, ensuring the Alberta public would have access to consistent care throughout the province and be protected from professional malpractice.
Additionally, she represented massage therapists on the committee that was struck to revise the process whereby people access care after having been injured in motor vehicle collisions. Changes included care being billed directly to insurers so sufficient and timely medical treatments can be provided and not be cost prohibitive for citizens. Improved quality of life is priority versus living in pain.
Her passion for healthcare, community care, social services, community development and sustainability is mirrored within the Alberta Party’s core values; New Energy and Drive, Democracy, Fiscal & Social Responsibility, Prosperity, Quality of Life, Accountability, Transparency and Engagement.
She is an avid squash player and volunteers in community associations and squash leagues.
Beth, born and raised in Alberta, is investing her future in the neighborhoods of Calgary-Hawkwood.
