ABOUT ME

Before becoming an Occupational Therapist, I worked in building and construction for over 17 years. I enjoyed my work – both I and my clients gained much satisfaction from a job well done.

However, I have always been fascinated by brain function, memory, and behaviour which led me to complete a psychology degree. I am also a creative problem solver, and I wanted to find both innovative + practical ways to help people by combining my skills and interests.

I decided to become an Occupational Therapist for two main reasons:

(1)  Because of my employment background, I knew I could provide practical solutions to overcome obstacles experienced by people living with disabilities. For example, I can advise on and design home modifications for my clients.

(2) Because of my creative skills, I knew I could offer people with disabilities different and sometimes unique ways of improving their quality of life. For example, understanding how new assistive technologies and innovations can be used to help my clients with neurological and mental health conditions.

My work is really important to me, I have been given the opportunity to do something truly meaningful. I start every day with sense of gratitude and purpose. My family and friends would describe me as determined, approachable, and genuine.

My work as an OT is not just a job to me – it is a calling to make a positive difference in people’s lives.
