Kate Thomson

Senior Occupational Therapist, OT Stream Lead

Kate completed her degree in Edinburgh in 2002. Since then she has worked in a variety of settings, the majority of which have been community rehabilitation. In the last 5 years Kate has focussed her intervention on supporting those with neurological conditions.

She has been involved in setting up a pilot clinic focussing on wheelchair skills and community access, and assisting with the development of a postural management pathway in Edinburgh. Since relocating to Australia in 2017 she has continued to work in community rehabilitation, and recently completed an upper limb rehabilitation course.

Kate is a passionate advocate for her clients, supporting them to work on their goals, and encouraging self-management.

Outside of work Kate enjoys travelling, spending time with her husband and kids and watching soccer.

Kate will celebrate 3 years with IRS in 2022.
