Lisa Dennis received her BScOT from McGill University and her MScOT (post-professional) from Dalhousie. She is pursuing Doctoral Studies. A rehabilitation professional since 1999 offering services to a varied clientele, she has struggled with personal experiences with her own brain-based disorders and this drives her to find interventions to help heal brains.

Lisa is also a fitness instructor and certified to teach Zumba, Piloxing and Urban Poling. She is dedicated to providing a holistic, culturally-safe, client-centered service. She has taken numerous trainings (Canada, USA, UK, Australia) to be able to offer cutting- edge interventions to encourage neuroplasticity... the brain's ability to make new connections. She offers a service in both English and French. She is well known for her "out of the box" thinking
Lisa graduated in 2016 from Eastern College with a diploma with distinction for Occupational Therapy and Physiotherapy Assistant. Since graduation Lisa has worked at several different jobs within her field gaining experience in both physical and mental health. Lisa has proven her ability to create a good rapport with clients and to be able to help clients meet their desired outcomes by safely and proficiently carrying out treatment plans and helping clients overcome barriers.
Living a life balance between work and leisure, Lisa spends much of her free time with her son. She is a member of an axe throwing league, takes drum lessons, and loves to swim, snorkel, or kayak.
