Neuro Occupational Therapist
Jo qualified as an Occupational Therapist in 2000 and has specialised in working with individuals with neurological conditions. She has worked in a wide variety of settings including acute neurosurgical wards, specialist community brain injury rehabilitation and longer term stroke rehabilitation in the community.
Jo particularly enjoyed her occupational therapy work in the community which allowed her to focus on enabling her clients to achieve their personal goals post injury. She also enjoyed supporting clients to return to work by educating the employer and the client, identifying the appropriate equipment required and grading tasks appropriately.
