Get to know Therese:

Why did you choose a career in the Occupational Therapy industry?

I grew up dancing classical ballet and through my dancing career was exposed to soft tissue OT’s who assisted us with muscle recovery and injury management. This led me to studying OT however once I began the course, I was exposed to the many opportunities available. The variety and diversity in the OT profession is what appealed to me.

What is the best part of your job?

Being an advocate for my clients and helping them meet their goals. I really value being able to develop strong partnerships with my clients and helping them to problem solve issues they are experiencing.

I also enjoy learning the intricacies of the NDIS and educating and upskilling clients so they can understand aspects that pertain to OT related needs and how we can support them to navigate these processes.
