As part of her studies, she managed a project at Monash Health Kingston Centre where she co-created an online educational resource aimed at upskilling occupational therapists in the area of home modifications.
Kaija strongly believes in equity, and that all people living with disability have the right to participate in the activities they want and need to do in life. She loves supporting people to achieve this across the south-east region of Melbourne.
