Leah completed a Bachelor of Occupational Therapy (Honours) at Monash University in 2019. Her interest in neuro-rehabilitation was sparked by her honours research project and thesis into the experience of a rehabilitation program “LVST-Big® for people with Parkinson’s disease”.
Since graduating, Leah has worked in hospital acute and sub-acute settings, and gained valuable experience with people presenting with a range of neurological conditions such as stroke, acquired brain injury, dementia, Parkinson’s and MS.
Leah is excited to now be working in community based rehabilitation, where she can assist people towards their individual goals and maximise their participation in the everyday life at home and in the community.
Prior to becoming an occupational therapist, Leah has had previous careers as a lawyer and remedial massage therapist, and has lived in both the UK and the Middle East. Aside from being a busy mother to 4 teenagers, when Leah is not at work, she enjoys running, tennis, and bushwalking.
