when did you establish Kent Occupational Therapy?
what do you like about being an OT?
It’s such a positive and forward-thinking profession. The aims of OT are to build on someone’s strengths and for them to work on the areas in their life where they want to make a difference. Most recently, working with residents in care homes was so rewarding and satisfying…. feeling like we had made a real difference in someone’s day and stimulated their thoughts and memories.
Now, I absolutely love meeting new associates and matching their skill sets up with the people who are looking for help from an OT. Recently, when we presented a new enquiry to one of our associates she responded with ‘I would be truly thankful and delighted to take this case.’ That is a rewarding days’ work!
Outside of work
I love spending time with my family and friends. I enjoy playing badminton, sea swimming, baking, and sewing. I love travelling to and exploring new places.
