Julia graduated from LaTrobe University in 2015 with a Bachelor of Health Science and Master of Occupational Therapy Practice. Julia comes to DWSP with experience working in government special developmental and specialist schools. She completed a placement in an autism specific school setting in her final years at university which fostered a love of working with children with different educational needs.

Julia has a love of learning and is constantly seeking out ways to build her knowledge and skills to support children and their families. She is creative, empathetic, and flexible in her approach to therapy to ensure all children can experience success and reach their full
potential.
