Why I love OT

I always knew that I wanted to work in the healthcare field, providing one-on-one care to clients to help them get back to what they need – and want – to do. I also wanted to be able to look at the whole person – psychologically, physically, and cognitively. OT was a natural, perfect fit for me.

I have a passion for working with seniors – whether it’s helping people “age in place” safely and realistically or helping a client (and their family) adapt to cognitive changes. I like working with families, care partners, and other health care providers to help seniors maximize their independence and help them continue to lead fulfilling, happy lives.

Beyond working with seniors, I also have specialized training completing ergonomic assessments, home safety, and attendant care assessments. And I work regularly with people recovering from motor vehicle accidents and other injuries.

Whoever the client, and whatever their needs, I strive to provide people with the tools, skills, and equipment that they need to set them up for success with personal care, productivity at home or work, and leisure activities.

Why I love Kingston

I think part of it is that I’m originally from Prince Edward Island, so being close to water – lake or ocean – is a necessity for me. But more than that, Kingston has a great sense of community that I gravitated towards. Great hiking trails, fantastic restaurants, and an awesome music scene, are just some of the things that fill my weekends.
