Thriving through healthy occupation:
As an OT, Miranda is a passionate expert in helping Australians regain their health, rediscover their purpose and start to thrive despite experiencing injury, illness, disability or serious trauma.
Healthy occupation means that each Australian can engage in the activities and roles that are meaningful to them and contribute back to their family, workplace and community.
Miranda uses person-centred approaches to inform her work with people with disability. She uses occupational therapy models of practice, applies the Clinical Frameworks for Health Services Delivery to ensure evidence-based practices, and subscribes to the Health Benefits of Good Work.
