Meet SA Woman Member, Kendie Gador.

Business/Organisation: My OT and Me
Job Role: Director – Occupational Therapist

Tell us a bit about you:

Hi, my name is Kendie and I am the Director and Occupational Therapist at My OT and Me. Throughout my 10 year career, my Occupational Therapy journey has taken me far and wide, from Gawler to the United Kingdom, working across public and private organisations. My position within these roles never ‘felt right,’ for me, so in 2023, I set off on my journey to establish an OT service that truly values people and that truly cares., and so, My OT and Me was born.

I wanted to create a service that focused on supporting the vulnerable in our community. To do this, I strive to support people with empathy, compassion and with the aim to be that OT that ‘gets it.’ In order to do this, I continue to seek opportunities to grow as a therapist and also learn from my patient cohort.

Beyond my professional career, I am a proud cat mum to Winston. I enjoy baking/cooking and creating an urban veggie patch to fulfil my ”sustainability cup’.

Why is being part of SA Woman important to you?
To me connectedness to like minded individuals, particularly women is so important. They say it takes a village, but this applies to all walks of life, including in business.
