Emily is an Occupational Therapist (OT) who recently graduated from the University of Toronto (U of T) with an MSc. Occupational Therapy. Prior to attending U of T, she completed her BSc.

Emily is registered with the Canadian Association of Occupational Therapists (CAOT) and is a member of the New Brunswick Association of Occupational Therapists (NBAOT).
Emily was fortunate to have the following engaging and exciting placement opportunities:
Hand Therapy Department at Toronto Western Hospital – conditions such as mallet finger, Dupuytren’s contractures, distal radius fractures, and more
BrainbOT – helped to develop course and article content for a concussion self-management app
Toronto Rehabilitation Institute: MSK and Complex Injuries Outpatient Program – worked with a variety of populations, including oncology, chronic pain, and COVID-19 long-haulers
Emily focuses on physical health while understanding that mental health is inevitably intertwined. Her areas of practice are primarily:
Cancer rehabilitation (e.g., cording, chemo-induced peripheral neuropathy, and post-radiation tightness)
Chronic pain management
Concussion management (e.g., energy conservation, self-management strategies, goal-setting)
Treatment of general areas such as scar management, posture, workstation ergonomics, and sleep concerns
Emily’s enjoys running with her dog, yoga, biking, travelling, and going out to eat with friends and family. She is from Woodstock, NB, but calls Fredericton home! She loves downtown Fredericton; all the breweries/patios, trails, and being close to her family.
