I achieved a BSc (HONS) in Occupational Therapy from the University of Northampton in 2004. Since qualifying as an Occupational Therapist I have worked within Nottingham University Hospitals in various clinical areas. I have worked within neurology, both within the acute setting, inpatient rehabilitation and community setting. I now work for the Nottingham Traumatic Brain Injury Service at Nottingham University Hospitals NHS trust and provide rehabilitation to survivors of brain injury. My work includes increasing independence in life skills, cognitive rehabilitation and vocational rehabilitation.
