Karen qualified in 2008 and has been a local authority Occupational Therapist for 10 years before recently joining The OT Service in 2019.  She is also educated to Masters level in the areas of Deprivation of Liberty and Best Interest.

She has experience in Paediatric OT with two local authorities and has been nominated during this time for awards in going above and beyond her duties to provide excellent care.  She has also written articles that featured in OT News and the wider press.

Karen was a mature student when studying Occupational Therapy and was able to balance parenting alongside her studies due to her committed and energetic nature.  She has no fear in demonstrating this in her personal time engaging in activities such as sky-diving, power boating and open water swims.

Karen is used to a large workload with high complex cases due to the nature of the disabilities she works with.  She is confident and patient which allows her to handle issues in an appropriate manner.
