Description

Lynn Davies, a Canadian based occupational therapist, understands the skill set and practice required to employ a balanced work/play/leisure routine, even for an occupational therapist. Occupational therapists can easily foster this balanced routine for clients, however OT’s may fall short of adopting this balanced routine in their own lives as human beings. Lynn Davies uses art and mindfulness strategies to strive for a meaningful routine. Her work balance as well as being an artist, is an ever-evolving orchestra as she has a passion for both.
