ABOUT LISA

Lisa Taylor

Lisa Taylor (Bachelor of Occupational Therapy) is a highly trained and experienced Occupational Therapist. She has been working with children who have a disability for more than 15 years.

 

Lisa has worked with the Victorian Paediatric Rehabilitation Service at Monash Medical Centre and more recently at the Angliss Hospital as the Senior Clinician. She has also worked as a paediatric Occupational Therapist in community health and early intervention programs.

 

During 2014, Lisa and her family spent a year living in a rural community in northern Thailand, working with and caring for orphaned children with a disability.

 

In 2016, Lisa trained 6 children with cerebral palsy to complete a community triathlon. This included equipping these participants with the skills to independently ride 2 wheel bikes and to acquire the knowledge and fitness to complete the event.
