Working onsite in the real world through practical placements was the highlight of my degree, particularly working with elite athletes where I assessed injuries and their relationship with data. I now own my own business and enjoy working in private practice where I have a positive influence on the local community, help patients achieve goals and positively affect their quality of life.

Creating a clinic shaped to the needs of our clients and their families has been an uplifting and exciting adventure. We speak of foundational building blocks in occupational therapy and studying with UniSA was the first building block for my career. We are setting children on the path to adulthood by assisting them to play, learn and become independent.

The podiatry profession is very fulfilling, with varied career opportunities and no two days on the job being the same. I always wanted to work in high risk podiatry, with patients at risk of limb loss due to wounds from conditions like Diabetes or circulation issues. Together with a multidisciplinary team, I can help delay or prevent the amputation of patient’s toes or feet, resulting in an improved quality of life – which is really rewarding.
