Brierley works at our Hibiscus Coast clinic. She brings a wealth of experience that began in her early occupational therapy years at Middlemore hospital. She went on to spend six years in London, working in varied hospital and private roles that further developed her skills. Upon return to New Zealand, and Middlemore, she took on the role of Section Head Therapist of Occupational and Physiotherapy for Burns, Plastics and Paediatrics. Since then she has also completed post graduate study in Western acupuncture. Brierley joined Hands On Rehab in 2011 and continues to be passionate about treating traumatic injuries, as well as a wide variety of other hand and upper limb conditions. Additional to her role at Hands On, she also assists clients with graduated return to work programmes and ergonomic workplace assessments. Brierley loves to figure out what makes her patients tick to get the most gains in rehab.

Outside of work Brierley is busy with her young family, pottering in the garden and keeping fit and healthy.
