Occupational Therapist / Practitioner in Hand Therapy / Certified Hand Therapist (USA)
Eileen graduated as an Occupational Therapist from Latrobe University in 1988 and spent her first four years working in the Occupational Health field in Melbourne. She moved to the USA in 1993 and worked in rural California at a private inpatient rehabilitation facility for 18 months with orthopaedic and neurological diagnoses.
Her career in hand therapy started after this, working first at a small private practice, and then onto one of the busiest hospitals in the country in Los Angeles where she worked for 10 years. She returned to a more rural area of California in 2002 and worked with outpatients in hand therapy and general occupational therapy practice. Missing her extended family, she returned to Victoria in May, 2015 to live and work.
