Natasha Wilch & Naomi Casiro
RISE was founded by Naomi Casiro (of Neurofit BC) and Natasha Wilch (of Symphony Rehabilitation). Naomi and Natasha met several years back with they both worked in a private neurological physiotherapy clinic in Vancouver, BC. Life had other plans for this dynamic duo though ~
Natasha moved to Nanaimo, BC with her family and opened Symphony Rehabilitation. Symphony is a multi-disciplinary clinic (with a neurological heart) focused on client centred care both in their Nanaimo and Online locations.
Naomi, still in the lower mainland, opened Neurofit BC. Neurofit is a Parkinson's Specific Clinic offering one:one physiotherapy sessions and group classes to individuals living with PD.
N & N (as participants like to call them) continue to share their passion in neurological rehab, particularly in working with individuals living with PD. Their energy, their dreams and their passions led to the first RISE Retreat in 2018.
