Hi, I am Cooper,
I am therapy assistant here at independent kids.
I started my ikot journey in august, I have come from a background of working in schools and disability.
I am 21 years of age and was born in Tasmania and have lived in the Huon valley for the majority of my life.
I completed college at Elizabeth and then Hobart college before getting a traineeship in certificate III in sport and recreation, where I worked as a teacher assistant at John Paul II primary school.
After finishing my traineeship I began working as a disability support worker for all about you disability services where I was lucky enough to gain some valuable experience working in a variety of areas.
Through my disability support worker role I found a new passion for OT and therapy assistance which is what drew me to wanting to become a TA with IKOT.
I am currently studying certificate IV in allied health assistance and have really
Enjoyed becoming a part of the amazing family at Ikot.
Some of my personal interests are sport, I love to be active and outdoors, I play football for the Kingborough tigers in the TSL, love working out at the gym and listening to live Music.
