STACEY HENWOOD – OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY ASSISTANT – KARIONG

Stacey has been a part of the Building Blocks team since January 2023. She is currently studying for her Bachelor of Occupational Therapy with Honors at the University of Newcastle. Whilst studying, Stacey completed a six-week work placement at Building Blocks in Kariong in late 2021. Stacey’s passion for paediatric occupational therapy is rooted in helping people and understanding the importance of early intervention. Stacey has a deep interest in working with those on the Autism Spectrum, who have ADHD, or diverse sensory needs. Helping people navigate and decode the world around them is what brought Stacey into the world of occupational therapy.

Outside of her studies, Stacey enjoys playing with and caring for her dog Rusty, reading, being with her friends and family, swimming, listening to music, and spending time in nature, as well as under her weighted blanket.
