Sumita graduated with a Bachelor of Applied Science (Occupational Therapy) from the University of Sydney in 2007. She has always been passionate about working with children and gained experience working across the ACT, NSW South Coast and a stint working in a school for children with disabilities in Argentina. She is committed to her continuing professional development and attends numerous courses each year to keep her skills up to date. This has provided Sumita with a solid set of skills which she draws on to provide each child with an individuals and holistic therapy program.
Sumita has always dreamed of owning her own practice and in 2013 with the help of a very handy husband opened the specially designed Kids’ Space OT clinic out of her garage. In 2016, Sumita’s husband happily reclaimed the garage as Kids’ Space OT outgrew this space and moved to our West Belconnen premises. Since opening the practice, Sumita and her husband have welcomed 2 wonderful young boys who keep them very busy and on their toes. Sumita is currently on maternity leave enjoying the early days with her youngest.
