Michelle was a registered Radiation Therapist from 1999-2012 before moving across to OTFC officially at that time and is now the Director of HR & Operations. Her professional experience has involved working with people of all ages who require radiation treatment for their cancer diagnosis as well as setting up the business side of OTFC whilst studying for her MBA. Having completed her MBA from the University of SA in 2014 she has focused her interests developing the OTFC brand, as well as being a mother to her amazing but growing children and wife to Dino, (Co-director of OTFC). Michelle’s areas of interests are varied but in relation to OTFC, she wants to see as many families being able to access the amazing and varied services they provide and continue trying to increase the positive outcomes for all children, adolescents and young adults. Her main focus for the past 18 months has been the growth of the OTFC brand to include OTFC+ (an OT Space for adolescents and adults with sensory concerns) in Mile End. This building is due to open June 4th 2018 and it will be the first of its kind worldwide.
