Teresa’s research interests include perceptual deficits post-stroke and her current work is examining the role of Dynavision device in rehabilitation after brain injury. She mentors OT students in research projects as well as summer students.
Teresa graduated from Queen’s MSc OT program in 2009, and an MSc in Community Health and Epidemiology, and several years of international work planning and evaluating Community Based Rehabilitation programs. As an OT, she has primarily worked on the Stroke and Acquired Brain Injury services at the former St. Mary’s of the Lake Hospital and the new Providence Care Hospital.
She has been a clinical preceptor in the OT program in the School of Rehab Therapy in Queen’s University for several years, sharing that she enjoys “offering her students opportunities to see and practice as much of the broad scope of OT on this service as possible, and consider how system-level constraints can impact OT practice.”
