I have had the pleasure and wonderful opportunity to work in various fields and teams including
– Cerebral Palsy and Brain injury teams
– Developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH)
– General orthopaedics
I grew up in Melbourne where I trained to become a qualified Orthotist and Prosthetist. I visit Melbourne with any opportunity I can get to be with family and friends.
I am passionate about patient and community education which is what motivated me to create this blog. I am just as passionate about further education and development within my field and have the privilege of being on the Australian Orthotic Prosthetic Association (AOPA) National Education Delivery Committee.
I am a member of AOPA and the International Society of Prosthetics and Orthotics (ISPO).
I would consider myself more of a cat person although I love dogs too. I enjoy baking and cooking, camping, dancing (was in a swing dance troupe for a while) and music (large range from heavy metal to gypsy jazz and classical).
I hope you are able to get something out of my blog. I welcome all feedback and will create posts on any topics you can’t find information on or simply want to know more about.
I will NOT be providing or offering any forms of assessment, diagnosis, or treatment plans. I will not be disclosing any confidential or private information about my patients, nor will I be placing myself in any situation that creates a conflict of interest with my current employment. This blog is to be used as a RESOURCE where I will answer general questions or provide information from an orthotist’s point of view.
