Nina Gansner

Occupational Therapist


Nina completed her Bachelor of Human Kinetics in Vancouver and her Master of Occupational Therapy in Australia, which included a study placement in India. While in Australia, Nina discovered she loved the sunshine and moved to Kelowna in 2011. Before transitioning to private practice, Nina worked just over 11 years in the public sector, including the Inpatient Rehabilitation unit at Kelowna General Hospital, Acute Care, Outpatient Neuro Rehab Program, and Long-Term Care. She considers it an honour to be invited to join people for a portion of their life journey, and her passion is supporting her clients to return to meaningful activities. Nina enjoys yoga, mountain biking, Nordic skiing, supporting local businesses, and exploring BC.
