About Troy

"My interest working with children and adolescents started in the third year of my occupational therapy degree after completing my first paediatric placement. It was from this time on that I realised I wanted to work in the area of paediatric occupational therapy. I have been very fortunate to work in a range of settings during my career. This has included a children’s hospital, special schools, and a range of not-for-profit organisations. My experience includes providing services (therapy/case coordination) to children/adolescents with brain injuries, physical injuries/disabilities, complex medical needs, developmental disabilities and vision and hearing challenges. I enjoy working in collaboration with children/adolescents, their families, and service providers to help achieve established goals. I take the time to listen and to get to know the individuals I work with so I can identify their priorities, what they enjoying doing and their strengths."
