Meet the team

Our Team

Ergo OT Ltd employs competent and professional occupational therapists with extensive post-graduate training and experience in ergonomics, worksite assessments and pain management. Our administration staff have qualifications and experience in finance, communications and business administration. Our therapists have completed their training in PGAP - the progressive goal attainment programme for return to work - a Canadian disability prevention programme funded for use in New Zealand by ACC.

Not to say that Fran has been around for a long time - but, Fran was one of the forerunners in occupational therapy private practitioners specialising in worksite assessments in Wellington. She is well respected for her extensive knowledge and experience in this field.

Since starting the business part-time in 1997 and full time as a company in 2004 she has continued to study and gain experience in ergonomics, biofeedback and occupational therapy. Fran has a post-graduate diploma in Ergonomics and is a member of the Ergonomics  Society, Biofeedback Society and the New Zealand Occupational Therapy Association.

Sue Colman

Sue joined the company in 2003, following 8 years in the UK. During this time she gained experience and knowledge in neurology, psychiatry and community work.
The last 18 months of the time in the UK was spent working as an occupational therapist in an internationally renowned inpatient pain management unit - INPUT at Guys and St. Thomas, London. Sue looks forward to using her skills and experience to assist those suffering from discomfort in day to day work tasks.
