Janelle is an Occupational Therapist based out of our Ashmore clinic now specialising in providing school based therapy. Janelle completed her Bachelor of Applied Science (Occupational Therapy) degree in 1993, at La Trobe University in Victoria. She has had experience in a wide range of areas including neurological rehabilitation, community based therapy, working in remote areas of Australia and paediatrics. Over the course of her career she has taken a break in OT for family and has now been with Grow On Children’s occupational therapy for 3 ½ years. Janelle enjoys working with children and engaging with them in therapy in a positive way, ensuring that therapy is rewarding and enjoyable for the child. She enjoys getting to know the children within their school environment and developing a rapport with the teachers and schools she works with. She knows how important family is to children and so even when working within the school she makes sure to communicate with families and to encourage them so they can be active in their child’s ongoing therapy. Janelle is married and has 3 girls and loves to spend time with friends and family. In her spare time she enjoys camping and travelling as well as cooking, helping out friends, going for walks and spending time at the beach.
