MEET ANTHONY RODRIGO
My early career as a counselor was in a community living milieu serving adults with complex brain health issues. This led to the next 7 years as a child and youth worker in a hard to serve milieu. In my 4th year as a case manager of two residents, I was among a few select front line child and youth workers and larger case management team to pilot a first in Canada treatment and assessment model for dual diagnosed youth and adolescents presenting dangerous sexual behaviour.

Healthcare/Education Benefit 2007
You never know when you are inspired to create a healthcare program. wHealthcare was ahead of its time introducing the idea of financial literacy as it relates to morbidity and financially responsible prevention first healthcare. Much of inspiration in health benefit design comes from this program.
Healthcare/Education Benefit 2004
Self directed wellness is an old concept with a recaptured meaning. At the time a seasonal "mental health child and youth worker", I was never comfortable with the words "mental health" or the idea that the mind and body were treated separately. Life science, Homeopathy provided a lens for everyone to identify and understand their unique "me" quotient. Engaging a whole person approach to restoring overall health including brain health.
I am currently on sabbatical working on natural medicine initiatives for different countries around the world. I have a combined 25+ year dual career in child and youth work with brain health complexities, natural medicine consulting and health related insurance industries, including: private practice from 2007-2018 as a Registered #15272 with the College of Homeopaths of Ontario.

Anthony is a "wellness guru" and his concepts and ideas are very refreshing. You can be assured that in any dealings you have with Anthony, your expectations will be surpassed.

Anthony Rodrigo encompasses the power of yet, the belief that even when a challenge appears unsurmountable, that working together, being loyal, honourable and respectful of each member of the team will equate to success. Anthony's positive approach, willingness to assume any role, quiet leadership and humility have made a significant impact on a classroom and the trajectory of the students and families lucky enough to have Anthony on their team.

Anthony Rodrigo would be an asset to any organization. The organization would be represented with a commitment to excellence and loyal service.
