Hello, my name is Caitlin
I am an OT from South Africa. I studied Occupational Therapy at UKZN and I qualified in 2017.
I have been working in a school for learners with severe intellectual disabilities for 3 years and I have thoroughly enjoyed it. Prior to this, I did my community service at GJ Crookes hospital in the KZN South Coast.
These contrasted experiences have formed (and still continue to form) me into a passionate occupational therapist. I absolutely love working with children and have begun various projects at my school, including implementing a sensory room with first class technology that has enhanced therapy for our learners. I wish to grow more as a therapist in helping people and their caregivers/families reach their full potential whilst having fun at OT. We really do put the FUN in functional activities.
I have a massive interest in Sensory Integration and the DIR/Floortime model and look forward to completing these courses.
In my spare time, I enjoy reading with a strong cup of coffee, exercising at the gym or going for a good run as well as cooking and experimenting in the kitchen.
I asked my best friend to describe me in 3 words and this is what she said: ‘Passionate about life, Empathetic in her interactions, Loyal in her relationships’.
