"I graduated from University of Sydney in 1995, and have been working as an occupational therapist ever since. My experience includes working with adolescents and adults with a variety of neurological conditions, including acquired brain injury, as well as orthopaedic trauma, burns, amputations and spinal cord injury. I have worked in inpatient acute/assessment settings, inpatient rehabilitation settings and community based rehabilitation programs. I have worked collaboratively with multi-disciplinary teams in each setting. I have worked with a variety of funding bodies, rehabilitation providers and community services.
I completed further training in the area of driver assessment and rehabilitation in 1999. I have extensive experience in this area, developing programs for clients who drive cars, trucks and buses.
I joined the Access Brain Injury Services team in 2014, working as both an occupational therapist and case manager with a variety of adult and adolescent participants. I have developed my skills as a case manager over the past 4 years, with support from very experienced colleagues. The majority of my caseload involves participants with complex needs, including significant cognitive, physical and behavioural difficulties, large rehabilitation teams and attendant care providers.
I am an accredited FIM assessor."
