I completed my occupational therapy degree in 2006 and completed a Master of Public Health (Health Promotion) in 2011. I completed my PhD, exploring the transition of work to retirement and the role of occupational therapy within this transition, in 2021. My clinical experience includes within workplace rehabilitation providing injury management and prevention services. I have also worked in the community with older adults providing home modifications and equipment prescription.
