Michelle Butler

With over 16 years of experience as an Occupational Therapist, Michelle now focuses specifically on CI Therapy as her preferred upper limb rehabilitation program. She is passionate about helping people recover from brain injury, because her Grandfather had a number of strokes. She loves to see people getting back into doing the things they enjoy.

Michelle graduated from the University of Queensland in 2004, she has experience in many different areas, including: Rehabilitation, Orthopaedics, Acute Medical, Outpatient Clinics, Adult Mental Health, Eating Disorders, Child & Youth Mental Health and Department of Veteran Affairs. Michelle has worked in Australia and New Zealand, both in the Public and Private Hospital sectors in a diverse range of roles. She is a clinical supervisor with experience in mental and physical health.
