Cait trained as an Occupational Therapist at Monash University and enjoyed her paediatrics and rural health placements. After finishing her degree Cait started working in a small rural hospital in Warracknabeal, Victoria where she developed her skills working across aged care, acute hospital and community health settings. While working at the hospital she developed a keen interest for her paediatric clients and moved across to Noah’s Ark in the rural town of Horsham. Since then Cait has worked as a Key Worker and Occupational Therapist across a number of Noah’s Ark teams around Victoria and is now the Team Leader for Noah’s Ark Wimmera Grampians team. She co-presented the Best Practice in ECI course for ECIA in 2019.
Cait’s professional interests include working with children with an Autism Spectrum Disorder, trauma and attachment difficulties, and advocacy for inclusive services and support especially in rural areas. Cait is passionate about working with children with a disability and their families and ensuring the best outcomes for her clients, and all families in the Wimmera Grampians region.
