Meet Mariana Zita, Clinic Health Assistant

October 25, 2022 | Meet the Team

I have been at the CURAVITA Glebe location since June 2022, what I like best about CURAVITA is supporting patients on their healthcare journey and getting to know them along the way! 

Creative outlets I enjoy are painting, collaging, and using mixed media to make my ideas come to life. I’m also learning how to crochet, it’s going very slowly but practice makes progress!  I enjoy listening to musicians such as Andrew Bird, Andy Shauf, Rainbow Kitten Surprise, and Metric. My favourite TV shows are ‘Bob’s Burgers’ and ‘Brooklyn Nine Nine’. I have seen the movies ‘Howl’s Moving Castle’ and ‘Spirited Away’ many times as I am a big Studio Ghibli fan! My favourite book is ‘The Night Piece’ by Andre Alexis. The author is born in Ottawa and the stories in the book take place here, it’s a really fun read! Other favourites include ‘The Hike’ by Drew Magary and ‘Lullabies for Little Criminals’ by Heather O’Neill. 

I love to cook Indian Curry, I love all the wonderful spices that go into it and I think I’ve finally perfected my recipe! My favourite restaurant in Ottawa is Sula Wok on Main street and PI RHO on Elgin Street. 

I enjoy biking and walking the many beautiful trails that Ottawa has to offer. I love the city so much! I have lived and worked in many different neighbourhoods around the city and have come to appreciate the special quirks our city has. 

 My last trip was to Halifax and I loved it! Someday I would like to travel throughout Canada.
