Meet Pat Waeghe, Co-Harmony Retreat Dean
Even though my working career is being a commercial Interior Designer, my love of family, God and the out of doors/being physically fit has led me to want to create/offer a health camp for adults at Camp Michigamme.
So many people today are stressed out, eat poorly due to lack of time and put off exercise, so my daughter, Nadine, and I teamed up to use our most favorite spot in God’s awesome earth, Camp Michigamme of course, to invite others to join us in a 4- day introductory journey (retreat) to learn how to become physically, mentally, socially AND spiritually healthy and balanced.
She has the total professional health and wellness background and grew up here in the UP. However she now lives in California so I am the main organizer before the event and she runs the show during the retreat.
This will be our 4th year for this camp and we have added many enthusiastic new people to our team, so we are excited to offer their expertise and to learn and grow together. Each year has only gotten better! I am excited for what Harmony 2018 holds!
Meet Nadine Waeghe, MPT, ATC
Physical Therapist and Certified Athletic Trainer
I graduated with a BS from Hillsdale College and Master of Physical Therapy degree from Emory University. I furthered my education through Michigan State University’s CME Osteopathic Manual Therapy program and countless continued education courses in a variety of specialties. I am considered an expert in Biomechanics, Footwear Design, Sport-Specific Rehabilitation, Sport Mechanics Analysis, Therapeutic Taping, and Manual Therapy.
I have provided sports medicine services for athletes at large urban and suburban high schools, NCAA Division I, II, & III colleges, the US Olympic Training Center, Special Olympics, and the WTA as well as many other professional, amateur and recreational sporting organizations and events. Beyond sports, I have outpatient orthopedic clinical and inpatient spinal cord injury rehabilitation experiences. I currently owns and operates Elevate Performance and Physical Therapy in Redwood City, CA where I provide integrative physiotherapy services to a large variety of clientele of all ages.
Originally from the UP, I first attended Camp Michigamme as a toddler accompanying my mother, Pat, an elementary camp counselor. I participated in at least one camp every summer through college and tries to come back whenever possible! My hobbies include anything and everything outside – kayaking, hiking, swimming (sort of), and skiing. I am an avid traveler and enjoys sharing stories of my global experiences!
I will offer interesting, hands-on lectures and one-on-one private sessions to provide advice and recommendations on a number of topics. Be sure to sign up to spend some time with me and you’ll come away with helpful tips, simple exercise strategies and better posture!
