I am an Occupational Therapy lecturer and have been at the university since 2009. I have been qualified as an occupational therapist for 16 years. My main role at the university is to take the lead on OT placements, this is a real passion of mine. I am interested in putting Essex on the map when it comes to exciting and innovative placement opportunities.
