Biography:

I qualified as an occupational therapist in 1991 and have worked in New Zealand and the UK and as an academic since 2001. I completed the Doctor of Health Science (DHSc) at AUT where I explored the meaning of occupation. From 2006 - 2014 I was the Head of Department, Occupational Science and Therapy; in 2013 I took on the leadership of the National Centre for Interprofessional Education and Collaborative Practice which is housed at AUT. I am the cluster lead for the Psychosocial Rehabilitation and Community Participation Cluster within the Centre for Person Centred Research.  I am the Chair of the Unitec Research Ethics Committee and I am on the organising committee for the New Zealand Interprofessional Health Conference to be held in Auckland on the 4th and 5th July 2016. http://www.nziphc2016.co.nz/
