Depth of expertise
Sean grew up on the Hibiscus Coast and holds a Bachelor of Sport & Recreation, as well as a Bachelor of Health Science in Occupational Therapy. After graduating from AUT in 2015, he worked at Whakatane Hospital and gained a thorough grounding in occupational therapy before heading off on his OE.
“I worked as a locum OT in the UK and also as a live-in carer. Back in New Zealand I spent two years working at the Laura Fergusson rehabilitation centre where I gained quite a bit of experience working with complex clients who had a range of neurological conditions and ACC-related injuries.”
With such a broad range of experience under his belt, Sean is a great asset to Cubro’s Community Care team. “I worked with Cubro’s other Auckland-based reps, Garry and Tony, in the community when I was an OT and they were always just so helpful and knowledgeable. I saw the difference that they made to people’s lives and I want to do the same thing.
“I like that I can continue to use my occupational therapy skills and get a holistic sense of each person I work with – not just considering their physical needs but their cognitive abilities, their roles and responsibilities, how they interact with others and finding out what’s meaningful for them. I have always wanted to do something that could enable others and help them be as independent and fulfilled as possible.”
