Nicole Chan, MOT, BA

Nicole discovered her passion for occupational therapy almost ten years ago, and joined OT Works! in 2018. Throughout her clinical education she has focused on providing client-centered and evidence-based services, and has worked and learned from different healthcare teams throughout British Columbia and Australia. Nicole has helped clients with musculoskeletal/orthopaedic injuries, mental health and mixed diagnoses.
Nicole is an avid distance runner and self-proclaimed “bookworm”. She loves math and science, and a hidden talent of hers is being able to recite over 50 digits of pi correctly.

The most fulfilling aspect of being an OT is being able to empower clients to work towards their self-determined goals.
