Senior Lecturer in Occupational Therapy, Practice Placement Lead
School of Health, Social Work and Sport
Rachel qualified as an occupational therapist in 1999 from Canterbury Christ Church University College, then moved to the Northwest to embark upon her career. She gained a variety of clinical skills including neurological rehabilitation, day services and acute in-patient care. She spent a short time in private practice. Throughout her practice she saw many benefits of taking students on placement, and this fuelled her drive to complete her MSc in Allied Health practice with us and later join our teaching team for the occupational therapy programs.
