Brenda Power Ahmad
Brenda believes that occupational therapy is rooted in an appreciation of how people live their lives and what they like to do. For Brenda, the most important goal is to enhance the quality of life for clients by helping them increase their function and independence as they go about daily tasks at home, in the community, and in the workplace. To do this effectively Brenda understands and appreciates the diversity of the needs of her clients as they live, learn, work and play.
With a warm and uniquely companionate attitude, Brenda uses a client centred approach to get to know each of her clients. Brenda believes in developing exclusive and creative solutions that are geared to achieve a maximum level of independence for clients to enhance their quality of life.
Equally important, Brenda enjoys the team leadership that running a business allows and takes every opportunity to mentor therapists about the role of occupational therapy with various client populations.
Brenda’s desire to help others led to a career in Occupational Therapy.
