Alisha Ford, BSc., MSc. OT

Alisha is our Penticton office manager and contract lead for both FCEs and WorkSafe BC – Community Brain Injury Services. Alisha was raised in Kelowna and completed her OT degree at the University of Western Ontario. Her love of rehabilitation stems from helping clients reach their functional goals. Specifically, she is interested in the full spectrum of brain injury rehabilitation (from concussion to severe traumatic brain injury), return to work programming, and medical-legal functional capacity evaluations where she’s been accepted to provide expert witness testimony in the Supreme Court of British Columbia. When she is not at work, Alisha enjoys hanging out with friends and family, going to the gym,  mountain biking, traveling, and winning pub quiz trophies with the Meridian team!
