I am currently studying a Bachelor of Occupational Therapy at Western Sydney University and I have a Certifiate lll in Children’s Services. After spending the last thirteen years working in paediatric settings, I have had the opportunity to work in a variety of school environments and locations with so many amazing clients throughout Sydney, Illawarra, Southern Highlands and the Shoalhaven region.
I have always had a strong passion for working with clients with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and have had fantastic opportunities under supervised experiences working alongside children with disabilities and complex behavioural diagnoses. These have included, but are not limited to: Cerebral Palsy (CP), Down Syndrome, Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease Type 1A (CMT), Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD), Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorders (ADHD), Attention Deficit Disorders (ADD), Oppositional Defiant Disorders (ODD) and Asperger’s Syndrome (AS).
I would describe myself as a kind hearted, passionate and caring individual who is extremely motivated and enthusiastic about supporting others to achieve their goals.
