Fiona is one of our wonderful Occupational Therapists. Fiona joined Everton Therapy in 2014 and has loved working with so many children and their families to achieve their goals. She describes occupational therapy as working to achieve function in what is important in your life. For most children that is working on things they want to achieve at home, school or play. Fiona loves having fun whilst working with kids and building their confidence in doing things. Bushwalking, swimming and raising 3 teenagers keeps Fiona busy outside of work.

Prior to Everton Therapy, she has worked in Queensland schools, supporting students from pre-prep to high school with various challenges and helping them to access and participate in the curriculum as fully as possible. Her roles as a parent of young children, and a facilitator of a playgroup also shape her evidence-based practice.
