Hands On Hand Therapy Team

Emma Keech

I received my Bachelor of Occupational Therapy from the Australian Catholic University in 2017. Since graduating I have worked in the public hospital sector in rehabilitation and geriatric settings, where I enjoyed assisting patients regain their independence and improve their quality of life. My passion for hands and upper limb rehabilitation has led me to joining Hands on Hand therapy and I am excited to have started the post graduate fellowship to further my knowledge and practice in this specialised field.

In my leisure time, you’ll often find me exploring nature through hiking, delving into a good book, or indulging my creative side through sewing.
