School of Allied Health Science and Practice

Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences


I am a teaching and research lecturer within the School of Allied Health Science and Practice. My background is as a clinical Occupational Therapist, with 13 years of broad clinical experience in acute and community rehabilitation with specialised skills in amputee rehabilitation, geriatrics, burns, orthopaedics and falls. I have strong research interests in the area of aged care and falls, dementia and translation of knowledge into clinical practice within the rehabilitation setting. My current PhD is looking at informing better wheelchair training within practice. I currently teach Biosciences for Human Health A and I am the course coordinator for Bioscienc for Human Health B.
