Area of interest and relevant experience

Since qualifying as an occupational therapist in 1998 I have worked across many areas of occupational therapy, predominantly within the field of paediatrics. I am particularly passionate about working with children and those with physical disabilities.

qualifications

BSc (Hons) in Occupational Therapy from the University of Southampton.

How long have You worked with Kent Occupational therapy?

I began working with Kent Occupational Therapy in 2017 and I’ve enjoyed working with both children and adults. I have worked with a number of people referred from SSAFA, the armed forces charity, which I find very rewarding.

what do you like about being an OT?

I enjoy making a difference to a person’s life and enabling them to partake in tasks that previously may have been too difficult. I also enjoy working alongside other professionals such as physiotherapists, speech and language therapists as well as equipment representatives as required.

Outside of work

I am a mother to three children, constantly juggling their homework and out of school activities with my love of crafting and baking. I have recently made all the wedding stationery for a family wedding, and looking forward to attending a workshop to learn how to make icing flowers later in the year.
