Experience and achievements at this company:
During my 9 + years at Vancouver Rehabilitation, I had the opportunity to work with a varied clientele. Because I collaborated with numerous therapists, it enabled me to utilize and expand on my various skills. Each therapist had unique & individual techniques that I, as an Assistant, used to broaden my own abilities.
It was a time of many challenges. Although this clinic is considered mostly an orthopedic, outpatient facility, I worked with many types of patients, including those with neurological and mental deficits. I now have a solid understanding for my role in therapy promoting functional capacity, health and fitness for patients of all ages.
