Meet Annu and Perdita: Occupational Therapists
Welcome Annu Sharma and Perdita Elliott to the OT Works! team.
Annu and Perdita joined us in January 2023.
They provide community OT services for individuals by implementing daily activities at home, work and in the community to foster increased independence.
Annu graduated from the University of British Columbia and dove into a practice area concerned with concussion and chronic pain management. She enjoys working together with clients to determine new ways to overcome their challenges. She has also spent time working in acute trauma and orthopedics where she worked with clients towards a safe transition home. She also has experienced with clients with mental health changes, strokes, TBI, and physical injuries. Annu works with WSBC, ICBC, private-paying clients and those with extended health/disability insurance. She serves clients in the Metro Vancouver region, including Vancouver, Burnaby, New Westminster, North Vancouver, Richmond, Delta, and Surrey.
Perdita has worked in community settings as well as leading clinic-based interdisciplinary pain management programs to enable Veterans to transition to civilian life. Perdita particularly enjoys helping clients who are living with multiple diagnoses, since looking at the whole person and treating the intersection between physical and mental health can lead to strong functional outcomes while having a significant impact on people’s daily lives. She has worked with clients with musculoskeletal/orthopedic injuries, persistent pain, mental health, post cancer, concussion, and mixed diagnoses to both enable engagement in daily activities as well as return to work. Perdita works with WSBC, ICBC, private-paying clients and those with extended health/disability insurance. She serves clients in the Vancouver Island-South region, including Victoria, Esquimalt, Sooke, East Sooke, Saanich, Sidney, Langford, Colwood, Metchosin, Cowichan Bay and Cobble Hill.
Like all our therapists, Annu and Perdita are full registrants and in good standing with the College of Occupational Therapists of British Columbia (COTBC).
