Ruth graduated from Sydney University in 1994 with a degree in Occupational Therapy and worked as an Occupational Therapist with adults in hospital and return to work settings and with children in community and school settings. Ruth also spent 12 months in England travelling and working as an Occupational Therapist.
After some time off to raise a family in a remote area of NorthWest NSW, Ruth started her own private Occupational Therapy clinic.
Currently Ruth provides a private Occupational Therapy service in the Southern Highlands of NSW for children. In addition she runs a clinic in NorthWest NSW every 6-8 weeks.
Ruth has a passion to help children and their families in rural areas achieve their ‘Big Sky’ goals.
Big Sky Therapy offers a family centred approach to therapy so parents and carers are able to be confident helping their child at home and in the community.
At school, Big Sky Therapy offers a student centred approach to therapy, where the needs of the student are placed at the centre of intervention.
Communicating and working with all members of the child’s ‘team’ is crucial for successful outcomes. This may involve online meetings, communicating with teachers and other professionals via email or phone.
