Career Summary

Biography

Anna graduated from the University of Newcastle in 2006 and worked in the Hunter Region as an Occupational Therapy Assistant and Occupational Therapist in Acute and Sub-Acute settings, within both the Public and Private sectors. Her time working as an Occupational Therapist convinced Anna of the need to further her research into Pressure Injury Management. Anna's initial interest in pressure care was sparked by the honours research she conducted in her final year at The University of Newcastle. This project involved interviews with local Occupational Therapists to explore their role in pressure care. 

In 2008, Anna took up a position as a Postgraduate Fellow at the University of Sydney. This position involved the commencement of PhD studies and lecturing in the Discipline of Occupational Therapy. During her time working in both the Bachelors of Occupational Therapy and Masters of Occupational Therapy Programs, Anna gained valuable experience in teaching and unit coordination.

In 2010, Anna began a new position working as a Research Assistant in the Community Based Health Care Research Unit based at the Royal Rehabilitation Centre. This position involved working with local clinicians to develop, implement and evaluate a new model of care in the Brain Injury Service. A peer reviewed publication in Brain Impairment describes the methods used and the early findings from the project. Anna went on to complete her PhD studies at the University of Sydney in 2016.

Anna commenced her employment at the University of Newcastle in March 2016 as a Researcher within the Health Behaviour Research Group. When an opportunity to return to teaching arose Anna moved to the School of Health Sciences, where she is now a Lecturer in Occupational Therapy. Anna remains a member of the Priority Research Centre for Health Behaviour, which is based at the Hunter Medical Research Institute.
