Adrienne Thoms

Occupational Therapist

After graduation, she spent a short time practicing at the L.A. Miller Centre Rehabilitation Program until she left Newfoundland in her Honda Civic, bike strapped to the roof, and headed west to Calgary to pursue a job with a Head Injury Program at Columbia Health Centre.  Two years later, she transitioned to a role as the occupational therapist/ Clinical Coordinator with the LEAD Foundation where she worked with children diagnosed with autism and their families. After 14 years in Calgary, Adrienne drove her Honda Odyssey back to her homeland with five bikes, a Husband, three young children and their geriatric dog onboard!  Since returning home, Adrienne has had the opportunity to work as a private contractor in pediatrics and adults in the community with various developmental, mental and physical health needs. She is delighted to be working with the staff and multidisciplinary team at the Dizziness and Balance Clinic and to add another dimension to the services they provide.
