What is your job role in the company?

Senior Occupational Therapist

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

I was exposed to OT when my Dad had a workplace injury, and later on I had a sporting injury to my hand where I was being treated by an OT Hand Therapist. I realised the role OT varies significantly, and that there was plenty of opportunities to try and develop new skills in various settings.

Towards the end of my studies, I realised how much of “jack of all trades” approach we take on as an OT, and the ability to problem solve unique scenarios makes every day different from the last.

What is the best part of your job?

Meeting clients and being able to provide, support and advocate their needs to the best of my ability. I naturally enjoy helping people and being able to see their progression and see the positive impact our input has on someone is ultimately rewarding.
