TAG Occupational Therapists
Morgan graduated from the University of Queensland with First Class Honours and the Dean’s Commendation for Academic Excellence. She’s much more that just a smart cookie though. Her clinical experience across both adult and paediatric services in hospitals, the community and private practice have provided a solid foundation for her ongoing career at Therapy Alliance Group. Her previous work as a disability support worker, teacher aide for Autism Queensland and an Occupational Therapy Assistant prior to graduation have provided her with a deep understanding of what life is really like for children with special needs and their families. She has a real knack for engaging and relating to children and helping parents to understand exactly how to help their child. Things I like: Netball, trashy TV, outdoor adventures, and time spent with family and friends (particularly when food is involved). Things I don’t like: Insects and spiders. Favourite colour: Purple.

Casey graduated from the University of Queensland with First Class Honours and a Deans Commendation for Academic Excellence. Her previous role as a support worker and practical experience in community and hospital settings instilled in her a deep sense of compassion and care for our community.
