About Me

Occupational therapist with 20 years' experience working in different children's services around Auckland. Worked at Wilson School since 2016.

About Me

Working with children motivates me. My background in teaching compliments my OT role at Wilson School. I've worked as an Occupational Therapist across the Education and Mental health sectors. My experience working in mental health highlighted the importance of sensory/emotional regulation. I'm committed to supporting students with unique needs to live their best life. I'm passionate about my career. It coincides with my holistic and integrative worldview. I also enjoy reading, painting, sports and being outdoors with family and friends.

About Me

I'm from the UK but have lived on the North Shore for the past 20 years. I love the easy access to so many beaches and regional parks for kayaking and walking (especially in the rain!) I have been a Speech-Language Therapist for 30 years and have worked at Wilson School for the past 20. I love working with our students and have learned so much in my time here. After 20 years I still have so much to learn!

Physiotherapist

About Me

I have worked as a physiotherapist for 15 years and can honestly say this is my most challenging but rewarding role to date. Helping our students with physical disabilities move from a restricted environment to a more inclusive lifestyle is my main motivation. It amazes me what our students can achieve physically when given the right equipment, motivation, and environment. Out of school, I enjoy sailing, playing football and spending time with my wife and three kids.

I have worked as a Physiotherapist in South Africa in a variety of settings and in New Zealand with children in the community. I love working in a school environment, helping promote student's physical wellbeing and development to enable them to participate, explore and experience the school curriculum and activities.

Kia ora koutou. My name is Sudha. I am a speech-language therapist based at Wilson School. Born in Singapore, I moved to New Zealand in 2005 to pursue tertiary education and have since made NZ my home.

I love working with children and young adults alongside teachers and therapists to enable and empower them to become excellent communicators. Outside of work, I am a busy mum to a toddler and a fur child. I enjoy cooking, reading and going on walks with my family. I look forward to meeting you all.
