Ruth Duggan

M.Sc.O.T. (C), O.T. Reg (NS)

Ruth has over 28 years experience working with people of all ages and diagnostic groups in hospital, home, community and employment settings in Canada, Kuwait, and the Caribbean. She earned her Master of Science in Occupational Therapy in May 2002; her post-graduate master's thesis involved using reflective education to foster an increasingly client-centred practice. She has been working exclusively in the private sector since 2000, providing education and consultation to employers and insurers, and community-based rehabilitation for individual clients throughout Nova Scotia. Ruth lives in Chester, Nova Scotia, and spends much of her free time in creative activities such as painting, photography and gardening. She volunteers a few weeks each year to provide occupational therapy services with a Canadian rehabilitation team, most recently in Belize.

Ruth's occupational therapy interests lie in working with groups and individuals to promote health and prevent disability, including ergonomics, vocational rehabilitation, and life care planning. Ruth's occupational therapy training, combined with her innovative approach and extensive experience in a variety of settings, places her in an ideal position to provide a comprehensive and client-centred approach to rehabilitation.
