Get to know Amy:

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

I’ve always enjoyed supporting people to achieve there goals. I was drawn to OT for the variety and diversity it offers.

What is the best part of your job?

I enjoy working with people to help them live their best lives. That might be with direct therapy, provision of assistive technology or problem solving with them. I love being able to advocate for their needs with their various supports and funding body.

I enjoy the highly individualised nature of occupational therapy intervention and particularly the ‘thinking outside the box’ to help people achieve their goals.

I have seen the impact the right piece of AT can have on someone’s life, and I have always been drawn to using AT to support achievement of goals and increase independence.
