what do you like about being an OT?

I have worked as an OT in a wide variety of settings, including teaching hospitals, in the community and in other specialisms with children, young people and older adults. I have an empathetic and caring approach and really enjoy working with a person holistically to increase their independence and function. I work with individuals and create practical interventions, to bring positive outcomes by working with the individual to make impactful changes. For example, creating individual sensory programmes that help to engage children in the classroom and their school activities.

Read a recent article that I wrote for OT News about Parkinson’s Disease.

Outside of work

I enjoy visiting art galleries and creating my own original art too!
