"Vulnerability is the birthplace of innovation, creativity, and change" - Brene Brown

Meghan is passionate about engaging in daily occupation as a means to live your best life, which enables her to provide exceptional results for each of her clients. She enjoys discussing client goals and working together with clients to help them with the challenge that they are facing. She is also learning about sexuality and disability after injury (acute and chronic), surgery, or accident and is working towards gathering knowledge to assist her clients with regaining intimacy as a important aspect of their lives.

Meghan’s goal for treatment is to help enable you to participate in an activity (at home or at work) that is meaningful to you if you are facing a physical, mental, or cognitive injury or challenge. You can expect a conversation involving a history, details of your abilities and limitations, activities and tasks important to you, and goal setting/planning. Meghan and OT is unique in the aspect that she is able to meet you in your environment (at work, at home) as well as in-clinic, to assess and discuss your goals and needs. Your visit may also consist of measurements being taken of your environment (office space, home environment), functional testing (lifting, carrying), and/or questionnaires.

When Meghan isn’t working, she is passionate about fitness and living a healthy lifestyle. You can find her teaching Spin classes at a local studio, running, exploring local Nova Scotia culture and cuisine, and spending time with her family in the Annapolis Valley.
