About me

Chiara has been a physiotherapist for over 15 years.  She is a clinical supervisor at Surrey Memorial Hospital and supervises the adult surgical and pediatric areas.  She has a special interest in  trying to minimize the effects of cancer treatment so people who have recovered from cancer can go back to what they love doing.

In her off time, Chiara enjoys a lot of physical activities especially anything to do with triathlons.  She volunteers as a triathlon coach for the team in training section of the leukemia and lymphoma society.

Inspirations

  • Chiara Singh

    I have always been an active person, in love with sports and physical activity. My mom was an X-ray tech and she always stressed to me that there was nothing more exciting and fulfilling then working in a hospital. When I was in Grade 9, my best friend was diagnosed with bone cancer. She spent a lot of time in hospital and actually had to have part of her humerus removed. I often visited her in hospital and this is what really inspired me to become a physiotherapist.
