“I started working with Montrose while I was studying Occupational Therapy at UQ as a Direct Support Worker and in their Short Stay Accommodation. I knew I wanted to work in paediatrics so getting relevant experience with Montrose while I was studying was a huge bonus. It definitely allowed for a smoother transition into my role as a new graduate Occupational Therapist.”

Georgia Kazzi, Occupational Therapist

“I started with Montrose as an Occupational Therapist in Brisbane but relocated to the Sunshine Coast where I grew up. I was recently promoted to Service Centre Manager here on the Coast. One of the great things about Montrose is that it’s small enough that you can stand out and get involved in lots of areas of the work.”

“For me though, the best bit about being part of the team at Montrose is working long term with customers, sharing their journey and celebrating ‘wins’ with their families and other members of the Montrose multidisciplinary team.”

Kate McMahon, Centre Manager

“I relocated to Toowoomba to join Montrose as a new graduate physiotherapist. I was draw to Montrose through their reputation however what sealed the deal was the welcoming and supportive environment. We have an incredibly strong multidisciplinary focus and I was especially excited to join a close-knit team that could help me to grow and flourish as a new therapist.
Every day brings a new challenge and I could not feel more grateful for the extensive support I receive at Montrose.”

Sarah Wilesmith, Physiotherapist
