What Led Them Here
While working as an RMT, Susanne discovered an interest in working with clients who had undergone a significant change in their health or functional abilities. She pursued OT to shift the way in which she could support individuals and families facing the complex changes that often accompany serious injury or a chronic health diagnosis. Susanne has a particular interest in clients with neurological conditions, including those with brain and spinal cord injuries, concussions, dementia, and autism.
Susanne enjoys spending time outside with her partner Justin and their two dogs, Daisy and Mowgli
