Ellissa is currently working with adult caseloads within the NDIS and aged care space, conducting functional capacity assessments, minor home modification assessments and assistive technology assessments. Ellissa is passionate about helping these individuals gain or regain the ability to complete everyday occupations that are meaningful to them.
