About

I am currently in the final Yr of my Occupational Therapy degree.

A mature student, enjoying life at the moment and passing all my modules so far…yeah…:)

I  am passionate about Occupational Therapy and have experience in the field working as an Occupational Therapy Assistant with the elderly, pre university.  Prior to this my career was in Banking!

I am very interested in neuroscience and have worked on placement in the field of stroke and in contrast learning disabilities and my last placement was working for a homeless charity .  I enjoyed all placements, but am currently more interested in working in the physical/neuro rehabilitation field.

I have many interests including literature, poetry and other creative writing, history, art, music and cooking in no particular order.

I am also a proud mother of 20 something year old twin boys and a girl.  Last but by no means least I am doting Grandmother of two!

You will also find me blogging here about things things that interest me.

    Knowing what I do about you, i can truly say you will make and im sure have made a great and substantial contribution to your field. I see my OT woman every week and will do so for the rest of my life. The difference she has helped make in my ROM and more so in her ability to help keep my PD from completely taking my left arm from me is a miracle.
    Many thanks to you and those in your field.
    Sincerely
    Benjamin

    Thank you Benjamin. I can’t tell you how much this means to me. I just love it when I hear that OT has made a difference. Sometimes we have to fight our cause in this field. Hopefully the days of people thinking OT’s are a group of basket weavers are gone. I have never been more determined to succeed in my life. As you know my interest is in Neuro.

    Bless you my friend and I hope you continue to get all the help and support you need to help you with PD.

    Gem X,

    Gemini, may I kindly ask if you still have any of your other blogs? I have always admired your fine appreciation for art and poetry. I was in contact with you last year primarily from my other blog. If you prefer, please send me an email. Thanks.
