Cynthia Puddu obtained both her Bachelor of Physical Education in Athletic Therapy and MSc in Health Promotion at the University of Alberta. She is currently a PhD candidate in the School of Public Health at the University of Alberta and her research is looking at the experiences of homeless youth in downtown Edmonton and how the Ice District redevelopment is shaping those experiences.

Cynthia has been a faculty member at MacEwan University since 2001 where she has been teaching yoga, dance, research methods and health education. In February 2011, she developed PERL 300 Cross Cultural Wellness, an interdisciplinary service learning course that examines concepts of health and wellness from a variety of cultural perspectives including inner-city Edmonton and Guayaquil, Ecuador.  In this course, students assist not-for-profit agencies in Edmonton and Ecuador that work with homeless and street-involved youth and seniors living in poverty.
