Janelle Penfold BSc(OT)

(Specialist Children's Occupational Therapist)


I qualified from the University of Wales, Cardiff College of Medicine in 2000 with a BSc (Hons) degree in Occupational Therapy.

Following a couple of years work within mental health for adults I took up the position of Senior 2 Paediatric OT at the John Parkes Unit which I thoroughly enjoyed, working with children from 0-16 years.  After working at the John Parkes Unit for nearly 10 years I was overjoyed to join the therapy team at Vranch House in September 2012. I thoroughly enjoy working in the outpatient service at Vranch House, each day is varied and fulfilling.  In 2014 I took over the lead of the OT team and I look forward to further increasing my knowledge whilst working alongside a great team.
