Pediatrics Resident, University of Calgary & Mental Health Advocate, Public Speaker and Educator
Alyse is a strong believer in talking about hard things. She started her career as a national public speaker about mental health destigmatization when she was 16 years old and is still inspired by the people she met along the way. She is currently in her second year of her residency in Pediatric Medicine and feels grateful every day for the chance to pursue her dream after a non-traditional journey to get there. Over the years, Dr. Schacter has spoken to thousands of high school students, teachers, doctors, frontline workers and parents sharing her message of hope. She moved to Calgary from Ontario over a year ago and still cannot get over the magic of the mountains and that feeling of putting on hiking boots/eating trail mix with M and Ms in the best backyard in the world.
