I have worked in the clinical field for a period of 20 years as an occupational therapist in a range of settings including: specialist schools for children with cerebral palsy and specific learning difficulties, and institute for the learning disabled, general physical hospitals, and community paediatrics. This experience spanned three countries: South Africa, England and Wales. In addition I have worked and offer consultation in the private sector as a paediatric occupational therapist. In my final years in clinical work I managed a community paediatric occupational therapy department with 14 staff.
I joined Cardiff University as an Occupational Therapy lecturer in 2002 and continue to teach on the undergraduate BSc Hons (OT) programme as well as sessions on the PGDip (OT) and the MSc Neurorehabilitation programmes. In the past I have taught as a sessional lecturer at the University of Cape Town (South Africa) and was a recognised teacher of the University of Liverpool. I am currently a recognised teacher of the Ulster University.
