Meet Maria Pavel, Clinic Health Assistant

September 15, 2020 | Meet the Team

I am a Clinic Health Assistant at our CURAVITA Byward location. Being part of the CURAVITA team is very rewarding as chiropractic care is one of my go-to therapies for self-care.  I  also love helping others enjoy the benefits of a well-functioning body.  Throughout my youth, I studied massage therapy, yoga and dance and have always been fascinated with the human body and movement.


I moved to Ottawa at the beginning of 2020 after a year traveling and working in the Caribbean with my husband.  I have a large family on the west coast whom I look forward to visiting again once traveling restrictions are lifted.


Outside of the Clinic, I am a dance teacher and choreographer. I enjoy spending time with my husband, dancing, and creative projects. I also love traveling (I have lived in three different countries), red wine, pets  (although I don’t have any), reading British crime novels, and the outdoors!
