My Background

With extensive experience in occupational therapy, Paige specializes in persistent pain, injury management, and mental health. She has worked with veterans and active service personnel, as well as in the Worker's Compensation and Disabilities Employment Services sectors. Her passion for understanding the complex nature of pain and the importance of looking beyond tissue damage has led her to join Painless in 2019, where she plays a significant role in redesigning their model of care and introducing the Whole-person Care Pathway.
