Nicola Schaan, BSc., MOT

Nicola has been with working with folks with developmental disabilities since high school. Providing opportunities for others to learn or experience something new has always been something she’s been passionate about. While working towards her Masters degree she also undertook her yoga teacher training, which peaked her interest in the overlap between current mental health theories and the mind-body approach that yoga provides. Nicola loves getting to work as part of a team and providing therapy to her clients and their families whether it be in the clinic, at their home, or out in the community. Nicola enjoys camping, hiking, rock climbing and taking advantage of the outdoors in the beautiful Okanagan.
