Cassie is one of the Senior Occupational Therapists at CPEC. Describing herself as “crafty”, Cassie is a brilliant problem solver and can look at all parts of a puzzle and come up with ways for it to come together. After meeting at CPEC in her youth, Cassie knew this was the path for her, so went on to graduate from LaTrobe University with Bachelor of Occupational Therapy and Master of Advanced Occupational Therapy in 2011. Cassie started her OT journey in community health and education working with a range of children and young people before landing at CPEC in 2018. Cassie is trained in NDIS required Home Modification qualifications, BoHA assessments, SOS approach to feeding and learn to play.
Cassie is passionate about physical disability and neuromotor disorders and creating a community of people around the child that can see the potential and possibilities for the future. Cassie thrives when engaging families for the first time and starting the therapy journey alongside them. When she isn’t at CPEC, Cassie loves paddle-boarding, reading and playing netball.
