Professional Background

She is dedicated to her patients and provides a high level of care, without which my husband would not have the mobility he now has following his stroke. We have the utmost confidence in her and have no hesitation in recommending her"

The client I am working with, who has an acquired brain injury, has benefited greatly from Kerry’s consistent input.  She relates extremely well to clients and support staff and brings a great deal of experience to her job.
