Recreation Therapy Team
Danielle became a Recreation Therapist as a result of her passion for working with people and supporting them to reach their goals through the use of recreation and play. She is a Certified Therapeutic Recreation Therapist (CTRS) as well as a member of the British Columbia Therapeutic Recreation Association (BCTRA) and a member of the Canadian Therapeutic Recreation Association (CTRA). She graduated from Douglas College with her Bachelor’s Degree in Therapeutic Recreation. During her degree, Danielle interned in the Mental Health Assisted Living program at Lina’s Place, locally, where she planned and facilitated daily programs for the residents, promoted and fostered community integration skills, and supported them throughout their recovery. As well, she has worked with the Special Olympics swim program and at a long-term care facility for individuals living with dementia. Recently, Danielle completed a practicum in Uganda at a social development association for vulnerable children/youth and women, and a vocational school for youth.
