Kyra completed her Occupational Therapy Masters from the University of South Australia in 2010.  Her professional experience has involved working with children and adolescents in a variety of settings (private, community and government) in South Australia.  Kyra’s previous work as a Paediatric OT has led to a particular interest in sensory based work, ASD and working with young people with behavioural and emotional difficulties. In her younger years she worked as a camp counsellor teaching horseback riding and animal husbandry to children. She spent a summer as an intern working with dolphins in Hawaii studying dolphin cognition for her Psychology degree. She performed at the Edinburgh Fringe at the age of 16 and she has visited over 44 countries.

Kyra joined the OTFC Team in early 2016 and currently works on Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday within the clinic providing one on one therapy and Thursday’s working within the school setting.
