"The experience I've gained working at Portia is invaluable!
I've had the opportunity to grow from an Instructor Therapist, to Lead Therapist, to Senior Therapist Assistant and Student Placement Facilitator. Through those roles, I have had the privilege of working at two of Portia's locations, and have worked with clients in Centre, in homes, at school, at a daycare, and in the community, as well as delivering therapy in both English and French.
Portia is a unique place to work as we collaborate with many other professionals (Psychotherapists, Speech Language Pathologists, Occupational Therapists, Teachers, etc.) to help our clients and families succeed. Working with other caring individuals is inspiring as we see day in and day out the differences we are making in children's lives. "
