Director & Principal Occupational Therapist

Having trained in the UK and qualifying with a BSc (Honours) in Occupational Therapy in 1996, Anna’s practical experience spans over twenty years in both public and private settings with services provided to both children and adults.​ Anna discovered her passion for assisting children with both developmental and physical disabilities in schools, their home and in the clinic during her time at a pioneering child development centre where she was a part of a multi-disciplinary team of health professionals. 

The desire to travel brought Anna to Australia in 2002 where she married and started her own family. Anna moved to the Kalamunda Hills in 2009 and has worked in the Perth Hills and surrounding areas since 2011 so it comes as no surprise that she is familiar with the locale. The yearning to work as an Occupational Therapist never disappeared and when the opportunity arose to set up the Paediatric OT service at a local hospital, Anna grabbed it with both hands! The years following saw Anna move from strength to strength including the 2016 milestone which saw the opening of Blue Goose Occupational Therapy, now Blue Goose Therapy Services, having grown to include the additional services of Speech Therapy &  Physiotherapy. 

Anna has a special interest working with clients with hypermobility and connective tissue disorders such as Ehlers Danlos Syndrome. Anna takes a whole person approach to her assessment and treatment of children and works with families and other stakeholders to achieve the best outcomes possible.

Outside of Blue Goose, Kahli is a married mum to two young girls and enjoys playing netball and spending time with her family and friends.

Rob qualified in 2003 with a BSc (Honours) in Physiotherapy from Kings College London University. Beginning his career in the UK he spent 3 years in the NHS gaining experience in each of the core areas of Physiotherapy. This progressed Rob to a Senior role in the community sector.
