She has a demonstrated track record in the publication and dissemination of her research activity, with more than 90 publications, and is also regularly invited to review papers for international journals. She has presented extensively at conferences, including invited presentations and keynotes, presents to community and professional organisations, and is also regularly invited to present workshops through the occupational therapy professional body, Occupational Therapy Australia Ltd.
