Karin Gavac


After finishing her Bachelor of Arts psychology degree at UBC in 2005, Karin spent an immensely rewarding five years supporting individuals with physical and developmental challenges in a variety of settings. Along the way she was inspired by occupational therapists (OTs) that used client-centered and evidence-based approaches to understanding and supporting clients – thus began her pursuit of a higher education. She is now a registered OT (UBC master of OT graduate) with experience in acute care, mental health, community outreach, paediatric, occupational rehabilitation and stroke rehabilitation settings. She believes that participation in one’s chosen activities is vital to health and well-being and is thrilled to be part of the KHS team! In her spare time she loves to socialize, dance, create, and get outside as much as possible to enjoy beautiful Kootenay experiences on the mountains and waters.
