We believe we have the most incredible lineup of vendors participating at the 2013 Expo. In fact, we’re so proud of them, we want everyone to know more about who they are and how their business fits in to the Expo’s passion for seeing Ottawa the healthiest city in Canada. We recently sent our vendors a list of four questions. Between now and the Expo, we will be highlighting some of these amazing vendors. Watch our blog every Tuesday & Saturday morning for another vendor spotlight.
Who are you?
I’ve been a registered Physiotherapist for over 6 years and decided to settle down in Orleans 5 years ago. I love living in Orleans, it allows me to raise my family in a bilingual community, and I enjoy the small town feel. Since choosing Orleans as the place I wanted to raise my family, I have become quite active in my community, from being a Director on the Orleans Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors, to supporting many local groups such as the Orleans-Cumberland Resource Centre, Eastern Ottawa Resource Centre, Orleans Festival, . On top of helping people get better on a daily basis at work, I also like to help out people in our community who need it the most.
How long have you been in business?
I’ve been a registered Physiotherapist for over 6 years, and a proud member of the Family Physiotherapy Centre team for almost 4 years. I’ve been managing the Family Physiotherapy Centre in Orleans since it opened in 2010.
What is your business all about?
Family Physiotherapy Centre is a dynamic forward thinking physiotherapy service provider that strives to help every client minimize their pain and maximize their mobility by delivering researched based Best Practice programs of care. We deliver our services in state of the art Wellness Centre which provides each client with an environment that promotes privacy and peace of mind. We provide our treatments in private rooms and the entire treatment is provided by registered physiotherapists, which is unlike most of our competitors.
The Expo focuses on four themes: be fit, eat right, think well, go green. Which of these does your business incorporate?
We best fit in the Be Fit category. We help people to be able to return to the activities they enjoy doing. This could be as simple as being able to walk safely throughout your home or as complex as returning to a sport you enjoy playing or going to the gym to work out. We work in collaboration with our clients to allow them to be as active as possible.
