Mezia Hussain

My passion in helping others especially children is what drives me in my 20-year career in childcare. After moving to Regina, SK over 25 years ago and diving into different careers such as banking, investments, and customer service I decided to take classes and get my Early Childhood Diploma.  This led to a lucrative childcare business that expanded from a simple home daycare to several extensions that expanded my business to serve over 200 families and a staff of 20. In 2019,  I move back to Edmonton with my daughter to be closer to family and continued my career in childcare as the Executive Director of St Albert Childcare Society. In 2022 I took some personal time to travel and expand my knowledge in childcare.  Over the next 2 years I consulted for many daycares and preschool program helping them to advance their programs and understanding of child development and childcare.


In my spare time I love hiking in the mountains, baking and watching Netflix with my daughter. I currently volunteer for the Youth Justice and am a member of several childcare organizations. I am excited about my new adventure in the gymnastics world and look forward to what this new chapter hold.

Born in Toronto but travelled multiple places around Canada before settling in Edmonton, AB, Simrat is currently in school for Respiratory Therapy at NAIT.  Simrat has played field hockey competitively for many years, playing for team Aberta and attending many camps for team Canada.  Simrat comes from a long line of field hockey players in her family – her dad, brother, and fiancé.  Simrat moved to an acreage in Ardrossan a year ago and is loving that free atmosphere.  She is very pleased to be a part of the Salto Gymnastics team and hopes to contribute in any way to make Salto Gymnastics grow and thrive.
