Personal profile


Lisa began her occupational therapy clinical career working across a range of public and private health care settings, with particular interest in head injury, hand therapy, service improvement and clinical leadership. After more than 10 years working within direct clinical care and senior leadership roles, Lisa began her academic occupational therapy career at Monash University in 2017 as a Teaching Associate; teaching across the undergraduate program and providing clinical supervision to students across the undergraduate and masters programs. More recently, Lisa was appointed Lecturer and Research Assistant, undertaking Fieldwork Coordination and developing collaborations across a number of research projects, including manuscript development. At present, she is working as a Research Fellow in the Occupational Therapy Department, participating in a range of projects related to the field of disability, under the supervision of Associate Professor Libby Callaway. Early 2022, Lisa commenced her PhD and plans to explore the topic "Examining the impact of persistent post-concussion symptoms (PPCS) on the occupational performance of adults"; forging new partnerships with the team at the Epworth HealthCare Concussion Clinic, led by Professor John Olver.

Lisa has a passion for research that has the potential to influence policy; process improvement; health and wellbeing; and advocating for the role occupational therapy has in these contexts. Her continued role in student professional placement supervision provides further opportunities to 'give back' to the profession, as well as coaching and mentoring students. She takes great pride in her work in helping shape occupational therapy practitioners of the future.
