Lisa Natale, ActivOT Clearview, was born and raised in Mildura and completed her studies in Occupational Therapy at the University of South Australia in 1997.
Lisa’s first job after graduation was as an occupational therapist for a private Adelaide injury management/prevention organisation. This role initially involved pre-employment functional assessments and WorkCover assessments such as:
- job analyses
- functional capacity evaluations
- activities of daily living assessments
- ergonomic/injury prevention assessments.
As her clinical skills and experience grew, Lisa moved into the senior occupational therapist role, which also required her to undertake medico-legal assessments and worksite education and training, for which she completed a Certificate IV in Workplace Training and Assessment.
