Biography

Ros gained her undergraduate degree at Cumberland College of Health Sciences in 1989 and worked as a clinical occupational therapist at the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital. In 1991 Ros commenced her Masters research study into occupational therapy in palliative care and began her academic career at the University of Sydney, teaching on the undergraduate occupational therapy program. Ros completed her masters study, and then moved to the University of Western Sydney in 1996 to become a lecturer in occupational therapy. Ros has since completed her PhD study into family adaptation following an acquired brain injury of an adolescent child. Ros is currently the Director of Academic Program in Occupational Therapy. Along with her occupational therapy management role, she plays an active part in the School Academic Committee as Deputy Chair.

Ros has continued to teach on the undergraduate occupational therapy program, including honours and PhD supervision. Ros has teaching interests in areas related to occupational therapy theory, process and practice. These important teaching areas help occupational therapy students to understand their profession and commence their professional socialisation into their future clinical role. She also enjoys one-on-one honours supervision, helping occupational therapy honours students to commence their research training in a supportive and guided way. Ros was a part of the occupational therapy team that was awarded two teaching awards: (i) Carrick Australian Award for University Teaching, 2006, citation for Outstanding Contribution to Student Learning (team award given to the occupational therapy program team); and (ii)  Vice-Chancellor's Excellence Award Teaching and Learning, 2005, Highly Commended (team award given to the occupational therapy program team).

Ros became the Director of Academic Program - Occupational Therapy in 2010. 

Ros is also a referee for the Australian Occupational Therapy Journal and the Qualitative Health Research Journal.
