Lockdown continues as we’re joined by our newest OT, Naomi

Hi, I’m Naomi, and I’m excited the join the DWSP team as an OT.  I’m originally from Perth, WA, growing up in the Margaret River region and I relocated to Melbourne at the start of 2019 to live the big city life.

I’ve been working as an occupational therapist for over 8 years, specialising in paediatrics and mental health. My strong desire to help others has helped me find my passion for supporting children, and in particular, equipping them with the skills needed to manage strong emotions.

I’m currently training my toy cavoodle puppy Miso to become a therapy dog, and is looking
forward to being able to bring him to work with her at DWSP to meet everyone and work with some of the families.

I enjoy music, going to the beach, watching detective shows and trying new creative pursuits such as water colour painting and learning the ukulele.
