“At MLEA, we believe that doing the right thing is always the right thing. This ethos extends to the way we treat our staff, our customers and individuals. It means having the courage to always speak the truth and act with integrity. We have a responsibility to be informed, up-to-date and above all, honest. This is the standard we hold ourselves to in everything we do.”

With 30 years’ practising occupational therapy, Vanessa has built a reputation for providing high-quality case management and occupational therapy services. Her assessments, reports and expert witness testimony are based on objective and authoritative opinion that stems from her broad and extensive experience.

As well as managing the MLEA business, Vanessa’s priorities include working actively with clients and providing professional supervision and ongoing development for her expert team. Vanessa is passionate about advancing occupational therapy and works with The University of Queensland to train and develop students.
