Qualifying as an Occupational Therapist in 1987 from Salford College of Occupational Therapy, Stefanie has gained a wide variety of experience in both inpatient and community settings. First completing a 2 year rotation post in Manchester, she then moved to Leeds and worked in elderly care for 5 years, initially on a medical ward and then within elderly mental health at a day centre and in community positions.

For the last 15 years she has specialised in brain injury and has been the lead OT in a brain injury residential rehabilitation centre, where the focus was on facilitating people to return to community based living. This included detailed assessments, reports, goal focused rehabilitation and assisting people to generalise their skills into a community setting.
