Abbey Omodei

Occupational Therapist

BIOGRAPHY

Abbey Omodei grew up in a small town of Southwest Western Australia, where she developed a deep love for nature and the simple joys of rural life. Her upbringing instilled in her a strong work ethic and a belief in the importance of community support, values she carries into her occupational therapy practice today.

Upon moving to Perth to pursue her studies in Occupational Therapy at Curtin University, Abbey initially found the transition to city life a bit challenging. However, she quickly embraced the city’s faster pace, relishing in its diverse range of activities and opportunities. Outside of her work, Abbey is a social butterfly, often organising gatherings and bringing people together to enjoy concerts and sporting events. During her studies, Abbey focused on paediatric occupational therapy, culminating in an honours project within this field. Her final-year placement at Calm and Connected solidified her passion for early intervention, where she witnessed the transformative impact of therapy in the formative years of a child’s life.

Abbey’s professional journey began at Calm and Connected, where she started as a therapy assistant. Under the guidance of experienced occupational therapists, Abbey gained valuable hands-on experience and confirmation that she was on the right career path.
