Jackie is Meridian’s Kamloops office manager and also acts as contract lead for our WSBC Community OT contract, ICBC contract, and Extended Care facilities contracts. She completed her degrees at the University of Alberta before settling in Kamloops to follow her passion for complex discharge planning, seating assessments and prescription, PTSD/anxiety treatment, and residential care. Jackie appreciates the diversity of her career as an OT, with the opportunity to assist her clients in the physical, cognitive, and emotional domains of their recovery. Outside of the office, Jackie loves spending time on the lakes and trails of sunny Kamloops with her fiancé and her dog, Parker.
