Michelle Mortensen

Occupational Therapist

Michelle initially gained a degree in Psychology which sparked a huge interest for her in neuropsychology, neurorehabilitation, and assistive technology. Through voluntary work in the National Rehabilitation hospital Dun Laoghaire Dublin Ireland, Michelle was introduced to Occupational Therapy. Michelle qualified as an Occupational Therapist in 2011 from Queen Margaret University Scotland and worked in the Fife community and NHS Lothian. She worked primarily in Medicine of Elderly and Acute Stroke prior to moving to Tasmania in 2016. Since coming to Tasmania, Michelle has navigated the Australian health care system (public and private) and integrated into NDIS. 
 
Michelle also works as a member of the Hospital Aged Liaison Team in the emergency department at the Launceston General Hospital three days a week. 
 
Outside work she is a mother to three very active young children and her fur baby.
