Melanie Souza-Ching

Melanie has 10 years of Occupational Therapy experience working in the public health system from acute care, to rehabilitation, to the community environment. She understands the continuum of care and client’s functional changes at different stages of life. Melanie values improving one’s overall quality of life. Private practice is an area she wants to share her knowledge and compassion helping clients with musculoskeletal/orthopaedic injuries, post cardiac event, cancer, traumatic brain injury, and mixed diagnoses.

Melanie enjoys getting active whether it’s going for a swim with her family or leading a fitness class. After 3 years of waiting, her plum tree grew fruit this year – pure joy!
