Leadership

Therapy Pro is led by a team of professionals in the therapy field who bring extensive experience and knowledge from across all aspects of the sector.

The Team

Therapy Pro’s Managing Directors, Julie Patterson and Phil Laidlaw, are committed to developing and maintaining a culture that supports both clients and staff to achieve their full potential.

General Manager – Service Delivery, Karen Staal, brings energy for change to the disability sector, and is central to Therapy Pro’s client-centred approach. Karen is highly aware of the many moving parts required to deliver therapy and at the end of the day, takes seriously the responsibility to get things right for the person and their family.

Supporting Karen and the team of therapists are the Directors of Service Delivery (DSDs).

Lara, Director of Clinical Excellence and Innovation, and Liz, Maree, Tim and Marcus, Directors of Service Delivery, are experienced professionals who in their roles, provide clinical and management oversight to ensure outcomes that create real change for people. With a collaborative way of looking at complex situations, and sometimes a creative approach, the DSDs navigate clinical and commercial priorities to support a skilled team of therapists in a multidisciplinary framework.

This unique combination of skills, experience and strength connects the Service Delivery Leadership team, and provides Therapy Pro with the right scaffolding to meaningfully work with a broad range of people from moderate through to very complex needs.

Our skilled therapists work and collaborate across five allied health areas –occupational therapy, speech and language pathology, psychology, social work, and physiotherapy– in a multidisciplinary way.

As Therapy Pro continues to grow and mature, Chirag Patel joined the executive team in 2021 in a newly created role of General Manager – Corporate Services. Chirag provides additional leadership to Therapy Pro’s busy corporate office which includes managing the implementation and improvements of our ICT platforms, administrative and finance processes, service delivery offerings, and support staff to strengthen our focus and service excellence.

“We are committed to investing in scalable resources and systems that support our purpose as an organisation – Empowering people, families, and communities to realise their potential,” says Chirag.

Therapy Pro’s Central Office team has a diverse range of experience that supports the therapists and keeps the business running, to deliver the very best in customer service.
