About Me

"I am passionate about my work and my practice. I understand and can relate to our client’s disability because I suffered through Stage 2 cancer. I feel compassion for disabled people having experienced hard times and the dark reality of being unable to support oneself due to illness. It has now been 7 years for me and I survived cancer!" - Sharmine Persaud
