Susan Moriarty – BSc., MPT.

Bachelors of Science in Kinesiology (Canada)
Masters of Physical Therapy (Canada)


Susan graduated from her Masters of Physical Therapy in 2013 from The University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada. Ever since Susan was young she always knew that she was passionate about working with babies, children and teenagers so as soon as she graduated from her physiotherapy degree she went straight into working in the area of pediatrics.

Susan has worked as a physiotherapist with children of all ages and abilities.  Susan spent three years working at a private pediatric physiotherapy clinic in Vancouver. Through this work Susan has become proficient at assessing and treating children with cerebral palsy, autism, Down syndrome, developmental delay, muscular dystrophy, developmental coordination disorder, musculoskeletal conditions and concussion. Susan is also experienced working with infant musculoskeletal conditions such as torticollis and club-foot.


In addition, she worked in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at a large, high-acuity hospital in Vancouver, Canada. There she worked with newborn babies to improve their respiratory health, to achieve developmental milestones and to prevent and treat plagiocephaly (flat-head syndrome). 


Prior to becoming a physiotherapist, Susan worked as a behavioral therapist using Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA), as a Special Olympics basketball coach and as an adaptive recreation coordinator for children in wheelchairs. Susan is passionate about helping children and teenagers set and achieve physical goals that are specific to the wants and needs of the individual. Susan finds that strong communication between the family, the multi-disciplinary team and the child can make an enormous difference in the child’s physical, mental and emotional success. Through this, Susan believes that every child can maximize their personal potential and learn how to participate meaningfully in their day-to- day life.

Carrie has been amazing with our son and we have been so happy with the progress he has made in such a short time. After determining the improvement areas, she has guided him through many different exercises while making it fun. When he first visited the clinic he was a reluctant talker, but with her charm and her patience, she has really worked magic. He is now much more confident, he is able to express himself, tell stories and has improved his overall communication skills. He has even started to chat with people he meets for the first time. Thank you so much Carrie, we couldn't have wished for a better speech therapist!
