I am passionate about enabling individuals, groups, and communities to engage in the activities that give their lives meaning and enhance their health – what occupational therapists call occupations.
I’ve been working as an occupational therapist to enhance occupational engagement for 30 years in Australia and the United Kingdom.
I have worked clinically with adults and children facing occupational challenges for a range of reasons. I’ve also worked in universities teaching and researching about occupation and health.
