Lucy trained in New Zealand and started out working in psychiatry and with the elderly population in New Zealand and briefly in London. Lucy then moved into the field of injury prevention and management and work rehabilitation, working in private practice with large government departments and corporates. At this time, she completed a post graduate qualification in Ergonomics. Having lived in Wellington for many years, her family was ready for a new experience and they moved to Sydney.
Since coming to Australia, Lucy has gained varied experience working in acute in-patient rehabilitation and in a new model GP practice. Lucy has completed her Assistive Technology Complex Home Modifications course. Universal design and creating environments that enable and support users to live well has always interested her.
Lucy has now been working in the Housing Solutions and SDA Team at ARC for over a year and has assisted a number of NDIS clients to be approved for SDA, assisting her clients to live in environments that are safe, appropriate to their needs and that enable them to achieve their goals. During 2020 Lucy completed her training in the new I-CAN assessment to assist clients to identify their level of function and support needs as part of their SDA journey.
Lucy has her own fitness goals to achieve in 2021 and this includes returning to regular running and participating in the Blackmore’s Running Festival later in the year.
