Hi, I am Yara!
As a professional I support people of all ages, to find meaning in the occupations, which they want to do, need to do, or are expected to do.
This role includes working in one to one settings, as well as offering workshops for companies and communities. In my profession I combine the knowledge of medical expertise as well as the sciences of human occupation and social behaviour.
As external staff and guest lecturer at Universities of Applied Science in Austria and overseas, I support occupational therapy students in reaching their competence goals.
As a partner, mum and friend I value the time I spend with others and enjoy the most rural life you can probably imagine, on a little Island without cars, streetlights or shoppingmalls.
My first years as an Occupational Therapist
After graduating in occupational therapy I spent a year in New Zealand where I worked with people with intelectual disabilties. Back in Austria I started working for the Austrian National Assocciaton for Occupational Therapists where I soon became a board member and the delegate to the World Federation of Occupational Therapy.
