Susan Schincariol, BSc, MBA, MOT

Susan enjoys the breadth, complexity, and unpredictability of community-based occupational therapy. Her clients include those with musculoskeletal/orthopaedic injuries, chronic pain, mental health concerns, post cardiac and cancer events, concussion/traumatic brain injuries, and mixed diagnoses.

One of Susan’s favorite books is “Oh, the Places You’ll Go” by Dr. Seuss. “It helps people understand that there are bumps along the way but in the end its all good!” Susan has been searching for, but still has not found a pair of shoes that fit both feet perfectly. But she feels very lucky to be the mother of two wonderful boys and share in the joy, tears and laughter of life with them.
