Sandra qualified as an occupational therapist from the Robert Gordon University of Aberdeen in 1999. After qualifying, Sandra initially worked with adults before joining the Paediatric Occupational Therapy Service at the Royal Hospital for Sick Children, Edinburgh in 2000. Throughout this post, she was based at a number of different special schools where she worked with a wide range of children/young people, but predominantly those with cerebral palsy and other neurological conditions. Sandra joined the team here in January 2009. She has a keen interest in supporting children to play and learn using their hands/vision, and in getting teenagers and adults busy in the kitchen.
