Jenny is an Occupational Therapist and graduated from the University of Western Sydney Macarthur in 1999, and obtained her OT Driver Assessment and rehabilitation qualification in 2005.

To date, Jenny has worked in public health service inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation. In the last 15 years she has specialised in community based brain injury rehabilitation in the Illawarra / Shoalhaven area. Jenny has extensive OT experience over a large diagnostic group including orthopaedic, neurological, aged care, mental health, palliative care, amputees and degenerative conditions. She has experience in assessment, activity programs, equipment prescription, home modifications and treatment to enable the client to achieve maximum independence. Jenny is competent in both remedial and compensatory rehabilitation techniques.

Jenny has a passion for brain injury rehabilitation, cognitive rehabilitation and upper limb therapy and is committed to best practice in clinical care. Jenny is competent to provide memory intervention (both in a group and individual settings) and other strategies to support people with cognitive and perceptual deficits.

In addition to her OT work Jenny has a strong background in case management and is an approved icare case manager. Her clientele has included people with challenging behaviours, complex psychosocial backgrounds and those with dual diagnosis of both brain injury and mental health. Within the public health system she was an experienced icare care needs assessor.

Jenny and her family have recently moved to the Riverina region to enjoy the adventure of a “tree change”. As part of this move Jenny has joined the Moore Rehab Outcomes team. Jenny is available to provide ADL Assessments / Retraining, domestic / living skills retraining, community reintegration training, upper limb assessment and therapy home programs, cognitive rehabilitation including memory groups and driver assessment rehabilitation. She is certified to conduct FIM assessments and other standardised assessment screens.

Jenny continues to be a passionate OT who loves to work with people to help them achieve their full potential in their chosen life activities. Jenny is based in Wagga Wagga and can service clients in South Western NSW.
