Maria Rideout, MScOT Reg. (NL)
Maria is from Newfoundland and Labrador and excited to be back working in the province, offering her extensive experience to VSC clients. She recently completed her Masters in Occupational Therapy (OT) at McGill University and is currently completing a certificate in Canine Rehabilitation Therapy. Maria works with post-op orthopaedic and neuro clients to build strength, prevent future injury, and maintain/build sensation.
As an OT, Maria focuses on client function in daily activities and quality of life. She tailors her programs to address the uniqueness of each individual patient. Maria also works closely with the veterinarians at VSC and “pawrents" to ensure priorities are clear, goals are being met, and most importantly that patients are having fun!
When she’s not taking care of other people’s pets, she snuggles her 16 year-old rescue beagle, Charlie Brown, and rescue cat, Cher.
