Where are you from?
I was born and currently reside in Wigan. I attended Abram Guest High School which is based in Wigan.
Where did you study/work previously?
I have attended Wigan and Leigh college completing an A level in Sociology going on to complete a degree in Sociology at Leeds university. I have also attended Manchester college gaining a BTEC level 3 and NVQ level 3 in health and social care. Recently I have completed a degree in Occupational Therapy at Salford university and am now registered as an Occupational therapist with the Health Care Professionals Council.
My previous working experience includes working at Salford Royal Hospital NHS as an integrated therapy assistant on the major trauma unit and recently working as a senior integrated therapy assistant on a stroke rehab unit at Chorley Hospital NHS whilst completing my OT degree.
What is a typical day at MTS like for you?
As I have only just recently started and am new to the team, I am yet to discover what a typical day would involve but am looking forward to working with Munro as a newly qualified occupational therapist.
What’s the best thing about your role?
The best part about my role as an OT with Munro is being able to assist and support individuals to achieve independence and quality of life. This is done by building a therapeutic relationship with clients and collaboratively working with them to set and achieve goals. As an OT I can monitor, assess and grade goals. to make them achievable. I feel privileged to be able to enable individuals to remain as independent as possible.
