Kevin received his Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of British Columbia (2014), and his Master of Science in Occupational Therapy from McMaster University (2018). He grew up training as a pianist and drummer and attended Jazz Studies at Capilano University before realizing he wanted to give back to society through health care.
Kevin decided to pursue occupational therapy because the profession is all about finding creative solutions to help people engage in meaningful occupations, no matter what the barrier might be, whether it is physical, psychological, and/ or cognitive. He strongly believes in the importance of helping people regain and maintain their independence. He is a strong advocate for people affected by invisible impairments resulting from conditions such as traumatic brain injuries, mental health challenges, or persistent pain.
Kevin is experienced in working with adults and adolescents living with traumatic brain injuries, including program management and direct treatment for early concussion and post-concussion care; mental health challenges such as first episode psychosis, depression, anxiety, and suicidal ideation; occupational rehabilitation; post-stroke recovery; and persistent pain.
In his free time, Kevin can be found going on hikes, runs, playing tennis, or playing music!
