About Kristin

"Areas of speciality:

  • Adults with spinal cord injury
  • Adults with traumatic brain injury

My professional career has been in the field of recovery and return to independence, including return to work mainly in the NSW workers compensation system. Health, wellness and independence continue to be the focus of my ongoing career.

I qualified as an occupational therapist in Edinburgh in 1986 and have worked in a variety of settings in Scotland, England and Australia - hospitals, assessment and rehabilitation centres, the community, workplaces, with an insurer and a regulator.

When I first arrived in Australia I worked at a specialist spinal cord injury rehabilitation unity in Sydney. On setting up my own practice as a private occupational therapist, I provided case management services for people returning home following a spinal cord injury or traumatic brain injury, assisting with resettlement at home and where applicable return to work or education.

I have extensive experience in the field of workers compensation, assisting with return to work as a rehabilitation consultant and more recently as a return to work coordinator.
