Ella Jewell

Occupational Therapy Assistant

Ella is currently studying a Bachelors of Occupational Therapy at Monash University; she is a disability support worker with youth and young children. She has a keen interest in mental wellbeing from previous placement experience.

OT areas of interest

Ella is interested in all areas of occupational therapy and has a keen passion for the profession. She would particularly like to work in the mental health space with people across the lifespan. She would love to advocate for the impact of meaningful occupations on a person’s recovery journey.

Hobbies and leisure

I enjoy anything that involves movement this ranges from tennis all the way through to yoga. I particularly love yoga and Pilates as a way to take time out of my day and focus on myself. I have been doing yoga since a young age and want to continue to do it right through my whole life. I also love to cook new recipes or bake food with friends and family as I see it as a creative way of expressing myself.

Pets  

I have a dog called Lola, who is a chocolate Labrador and is the biggest ball of fun and joy in my life. She is also very much into food and will do practically anything if it involves a treat. She has gotten me through a lot of my studies and keeps me motivated to go on walks.

Evie Massee

Occupational Therapy Assistant

Evie is studying Occupational Therapy (OT) at Monash University. She is also an artist and has been doing commission work for around two years now. She has lived experience with mental health, using art as a great outlet and therapy for her.

OT areas of interest

Evie is very interested in mental health, hand therapy and paediatrics, as well as the creative arts as a form of therapy. She would love to to explore this area of OT, raise awareness about it, and help people improve their quality of life with the creative arts while they are living with mental health conditions.

Hobbies and leisure

I love creating art, drawing is one of my favourite things to do, and making props or replicas from my favourite animated movies. I love to act and perform on stage, and I would love to get back into doing musical theatre, since my last production was in high school. I also love listening to 80’s music, Def Leppard is my jam!

Pets?

I had a beautiful dog named Skye, who I’ve had since I was 6 years old. She passed last year, but she’ll always be my best friend and is still a huge part of my family. She was a Koolie cross (not sure of the other breed she was mixed with). She had a blue eye and a brown eye, and had markings on her butt that resembled a smiley face 🙂 ! In general, dogs are my favourite pets, I love them so much!
