AKA: Coffee Lover

 

I have always been a bit of a clumsy person, breaking my arms three times before the age of two. As a result, from early on I have had to find new and adaptive ways of achieving things through injury! These experiences, combined with my passion for helping people, led me to pursue a degree in allied health. Now I get work with people in creative ways every day, helping them return to doing things they want to do and need to do in daily life.

I graduated from the University of Queensland in 2016 with a Bachelor of Occupational Therapy (Honours). I worked as a practitioner of hand therapy in the Hand and Upper Limb Unit at the Princess Alexandra Hospital in Brisbane, which is where my passion for hand therapy bloomed. I was lucky to work with some incredible therapists and leading surgeons and have experience treating a range of conditions. I also love to chat just as much as I love hand therapy, so don’t be afraid to say hello if you see me floating around the clinic!
