My name is Georgia, pronouns she/hers, I am 23 years old and an occupational therapist working as a Graduate Teaching Assistant in Occupational Therapy at The University of Huddersfield. My passions aside from activism and occupational therapy are reading, theatre, and music, including gigs and festivals!
I was 18 years old and had just started my training to become an occupational therapist when I started Not So Terrible Palsy had been guest blogging and started to get more involved in the disabled online community and disabled advocacy.
In 2021 I qualified with a First Class Degree in BSc Occupational Therapy with Hons. I was also named as a Rising Star on the Shaw Trust #DisabilityPower100 in 2021.
As a founding member of AbleOTUK, I strive to work with others to disrupt the profession and recognise intersectionality whilst working with occupational therapists from around the globe.
I am currently writing my debut book about dismantling ableism in occupational therapy practice and am so thankful to so be a published author.
I rank in the top 2 Occupational Therapy bloggers in the UK and have over 5,000 followers from around the globe and this continues to grow. I am so thankful for all the support I receive and would have never thought that when I started in 2019 I’d still be here.
