About me: I trained as an occupational therapist, and graduated in 1984. Since then I’ve continued study at postgraduate level and my papers have included business skills, ergonomics, mental health therapies, and psychology. I completed by Masters in Psychology in 1999, and started my PhD in 2007. I work as a  Senior Lecturer in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery & Musculoskeletal Medicine, University of Otago, Christchurch campus, New Zealand.

I have worked in the field of chronic pain management, helping people develop ‘self management’ skills for over 20 years. I have chronic pain and use these skills daily.

I work collaboratively with people because all people have limitations and vulnerabilities – as well as strengths and potential.

  1. Hi Bronnie,
    I’m an occupational therapy lecturer in Perth and came across your blog through the Pain Society of Alberta (from one side of the world and back to the other!). My special interest in pain is acute pain management but I’ve worked with clients dealing with chronic pain for a long time and I just wanted to say that your blog on flexible persistence is really nicely covered thankyou. Maybe I’ll get a chance to meet you along the way – I’ll certainly touch base with your blog and recommend to some of my fellow OTs working in hand therapy here that they stop in and have a read, thanks, Katrina
