This is what I do[edit | edit source]

I am an Occupational Therapist who works in an international team for Physiopedia as well as for Austrias national OT association Ergotherpie Austria. I graduated in Occuaptional Therapy (2009) and did my master's degree in Health Assisting Engineering (2014). During the last years, I combined working in the clinical field as well as teaching as an external lecturer at Universities in Austria and overseas. Within my role as WFOT Delegate and board member of Ergotherapie Austria, I have been involved in reviewing and developing occupational therapy curricula in Austria. Recently I joined the team of Physiopedia, to work on developing an interprofessional toolkit for the education of rehabilitation professionals around the globe.

A bit more about me[edit | edit source]

I was born in Germany and raised in Austria where I later studied and became an Occupational Therapist. In 2021 I moved to the Channel Islands where I now mainly work in the field of health prevention and offer online services besides the work I do for Physiopedia.
