I have been employed at Laurier since December of 2017. Prior to this, I worked at Grand River Hospital as an occupational therapist (OT) working in Specialized Mental Health, Dementia and Geriatric Care, and Stroke Rehab, among other units. I received my Bachelor's degree in Kinesiology at Western University in 2006, and my Master of Science in Occupational Therapy at McMaster University in 2008. I have maintained my OT designation and thus remain a regulated health professional.
