Brooke has worked in the aged care/disability sector for 10 years, initially as a personal care worker before graduating as an occupational therapist in 2013. Her qualifications include Bachelor of Applied Science (Occupational Therapy), and Graduate Diploma of Psychology.
Brooke's experience stems from adult inpatient and community mental health settings where she had a particular interest in older persons mental health, including cognitive screening and assessment of psychiatric symptoms in the context of dementia.
Brooke's passion lies within the disability, aged and dementia care sector where she provides clinical assessment and support in both community and residential care settings. Brooke is on a mission to help break through the stigma of dementia and help people living with the condition to feel valued members of society where they can contribute to their community and continue to have purpose. Outside of work, you will see Brooke out running the local trails with her Border Collie Murphy. Of course spending time with her family and young daughter is a big priority, as well as playing netball for the mighty Wayback Demons!
