Biography

I began my post as lecturer in Occupational Therapy in the School of Health, Sport and Rehabilitation Sciences at The University of Salford in December 2003 and I feel that I have developed and extended my role significantly during this time. Having been a clinical occupational therapist for 9 years, my motivation for moving into education was to empower occupational therapy students and to provide the resources for students to build the necessary confidence and conviction to move the profession of occupational therapy forward.
