I originally graduated from the University of Sheffield in 2006, having completed a BSc (Hons) Physics with Medical Physics. I worked in various NHS roles and spent some time living and working abroad. Having moved down to Devon in 2009, I then spent seven years working for the Met Office. However, I felt that I really wanted to return to working in healthcare, and so I have recently qualified as an Occupational Therapist, having completed the MSc (Pre-Registration) Occupational Therapy course at Plymouth University.  During my course I had a particular interest in research, and I was awarded the Catherine Mounter Award for the best Occupational Science dissertation in that year.  Alongside the Occupational Therapy training, I spent time working in adult mental health services, which I really enjoyed. But I have always had a real passion for working with children and young people, and so was very pleased to take up the post of outpatients Occupational Therapist at Vranch House. I am really enjoying working with children, young people and their families, and developing my Occupational Therapy skills in such a supportive environment.
