Testimonial
She is superb. She knows brain injury like the back of her hand and that is reflected in the way she has the confidence to put a team of therapists together and knows exactly where to go and upon whom to call to put together the team and progress the client’s rehab. She has excellent communication skills and is always happy to speak on the telephone/prepare well thought through and thorough reports which are easy to read and well laid out.…She is often instrumental in helping to secure much needed interim funds by agreeing to attend pathfinder meetings with insurers and is always very well prepared and very persuasive.
