Bronwyn completed her Bachelor of Science in Occupational Therapy at Sydney University (Cumberland College Campus). She grew up on the central coast and lived and worked there until 2016 when she went travelling around Australia. She has lived and worked in QLD and Northern NSW since travelling, before moving to Port Macquarie in early 2021. Her work history was primarily in occupational rehabilitation, however after a career break, changed focus to aged care.
What do you love most about your job?
I love working with elderly residents in aged care facilities. I feel that it is an incredibly important role assisting residents in dealing with the physical, cognitive, and psychosocial challenges of aging.
Areas of interest?
I’m particularly interested in the wholistic approach to OT programs that provide residents with a sense of purpose and value, whilst at the same time aid in maintaining mobility and function, are enjoyable, ease pain and provide emotional/social support.
Your top tip
We are all going to get older (if we are lucky) so treat elderly people the way you would like to be treated when it’s your turn.
People would be surprised if they knew…
My nickname is Billie because I’m the youngest of 4 daughters and my dad wanted a son. I was taught many of the traditional “boy roles” and am handy with tools, mechanical issues and love fishing, camping, boating, and adventuring.
