what do you like about being an OT?

I have wanted to be an OT since I was three years old. My sister has cerebral palsy and I remember going to her sessions when I was little and was really inspired by her OT, Helen. I was so proud when I graduated! Initially working with adults in intermediate care, then moving to paediatrics. I am not sure that I can sum up how I feel about my role but helping a child to achieve a goal and to increase their self-worth is an amazing feeling. Or giving a child a piece of equipment that enables them to increase their participation in activities, this can be anything from adapted cutlery to a specialist seat. I just hope I can make a difference for a child and their families, so they can fondly remember me, the way we remember Helen.

Outside of work

When I am not working I love spending time with my husband and my girls. Walks along the seafront and trips to London are my favourite things to do, particularly if it involves stopping at a few shops along the way!

In my spare time, I have also found a love for running! I never imagined myself as a runner but I am, albeit a slow one!
