Chelsea is currently employed as an occupational therapist at LiveBetter in Rockhampton. For Chelsea, occupational therapy is a rewarding profession where she can give back to others.
Chelsea is a proud Indigenous woman from the Kara Kara tribe of the Central Highlands region. Throughout her degree, Chelsea took every possible opportunity to develop her learning. This included an overseas placement in Thailand, three block placements, in-class activities and a wide range of other learning opportunities.
Chelsea believes that University study can be the catalyst for achieving your dreams. It can also allow you to make connections with other health professionals that can help you in the long run.
“To me, being an occupational therapist is about helping others live a more independent life through therapy and adapting tasks to help people do what they want and need to do and reaching their personal goals.”
