Louise Chiasson, BSc. HK, MSc. OT

Louise comes to us from New Brunswick and is Meridian’s favourite French Acadian! After completing her Bachelor of Science in Human Kinetics in Nova Scotia, and her Master of Science in Occupational Therapy, Louise headed west where she joined our Kamloops team in early 2017. Louise is bilingual, fluent in both English and French. As an OT, she has a special interest in stroke rehab, mental health and community rehab. She also loves anything that gets the endorphins flowing – running, basketball and hiking! When it’s time to wind down, she spends time doing yoga and listening to TED talks & podcasts.
