Andrew’s an occupational therapist with almost 25 years’ clinical experience, with much of it spent focusing on complex postural seating needs.
Originally from Esperance, Andrew has worked all over the world specialising to in customised seating and gaining a huge level of hands-on experience when it comes to prescribing and fitting wheelchairs.
Off-duty he’s a keen windsurfer, mountain biker, DIY problem solver and beer connoisseur.
BSc (Occupational Therapy), Grad Dip Ed (Early Childhood)
A specialist in early intervention, seating and positioning, Kym has been working as an occupational therapist and manager for more than 15 years.
Her passion for helping people to achieve their mobility goals ensures Kym always has a new idea up her sleeve. She also has a knack of explaining things in a way people just ‘get’ – we put this down to the fact that before she became the highly skilled OT she is today she moonlighted as a primary school teacher.
Kym’s a self-confessed sports nut, and out-of-hours can be found cheering on her various teams, chasing her energetic little boy or spending time at the beach with her dogs.
BSc (Occupational Therapy)
Fusing optimism, a passion for promoting independence and inclusion and a strong clinical skill set Sarah hit the ground running when she joined Motum in early 2018.
With an ability to connect with people of all ages and a ‘bigger picture’ outlook, Sarah loves being able to prescribe equipment to help her clients achieve more in every aspect of their lives.
Sarah’s also our very own ‘crazy cat lady’ and on weekends you’ll most likely find her trying out different coffee hotspots or soaking up Perth’s best beaches.
A combined love of movement and problem-solving runs deep in Donna, and it’s something she has drawn on every day since joining the Motum team in mid-2018.
An experienced physiotherapist, Donna has worked in a variety of rural and metropolitan locations honing her knowledge of posture and biomechanics since graduating in 2011. She now pairs that knowledge with Motum’s extensive line-up of equipment and is passionate about finding the right combination of tools to inspire others to explore the world around them.
Ask Donna how her weekend was and she’ll most likely tell you she’s training for her next adventure – she loves to hike and already has some of the big names under her belt (Lost City, Inca Trail, Mount Kilimanjaro just to name a few).
Clint is an experienced troubleshooter who has been working with powered wheelchairs for almost two decades.
He enjoys working with clients and therapists to match a chair to an individual’s needs – always willing to go the extra mile to get the best result he can.
On the weekend you’ll most likely find him surrounded by classic cars, his three dogs, spending time with his family or cheering his beloved Hawks onto a victory.
Nat joined the Motum team in early 2015, taking charge of the small-but-busy office.
Combining her expertise in administration and her knowledge of seating and postural equipment Nat works behind the scenes, working with our distributors and suppliers to keep things running smoothly.
Outside of work, Nat’s a keen gardener, home chef and camping enthusiast.
Administrative Services Manager
With a knack for making things happen, a passion for great customer service and a desire to help others, Sue knew she’d struck gold when she started working in the mobility industry more than 12 years ago.
Since joining the team in mid-2019 Sue has expanded her product knowledge and relationships enabling her to provide first-class admin support to our clients, therapists and suppliers.
Always up for a good chat, she’ll happily share her views on the many films she watches, the highs and lows of the latest West Coast Eagles’ games and the adventures of friends and family.
Nadia’s skill for establishing order and her calm, ‘never-too-much trouble’ approach to life have been assets to the busy Motum office since she joined the team in mid-2019.
Having worked across a number of sectors (everything from advertising to insurance) and with a list of passions spanning music (she’s a qualified audio engineer), cooking (especially channelling her Italian roots) and travel it’s not difficult to hit upon a topic of conversation with Nadia – which can be a good thing too as she’s the first person therapists, clients and families will meet when visiting us.
After almost a decade spent working as a mechanic, Liam made the switch from cars to wheelchairs in mid-2019 and hasn’t looked back.
As Motum’s full-time rehabilitation technician, Liam’s problem-solving skills are constantly being put to the test. And, he tells us, it’s a far more rewarding way to spend his days.
That’s not to say he doesn’t still enjoy getting his hands dirty with car grease. Off-the-clock he’s still likely to be found pimping his own ride, but on the occasions that his hands are clean they are likely to contain either a musical instrument or pint of beer.
Having worked as both a mechanic and an engineer, Ken just couldn’t help himself when he realised that wheelchairs need a bit of tinkering every now and then. With an excuse to prolong retirement a bit longer, and because he’s happiest with a spanner or an Allen key in his hand, he joined the business on a part-time basis to take on maintenance duties.
Off-duty, Ken also can’t keep himself away from wheels – he’s a keen road cyclist too, so is very well practiced at changing tyres!
Biomedical engineering technician
Jim is one of WA’s most experienced trouble-shooters around when it comes to rehabilitation equipment. With a flair for problem solving, he’s quick to devise solutions, working closely with our therapists to design and customise products whenever there’s a need.
Jim’s workspace is the envy of many – he loves gadgets and has a tool for pretty every need you can imagine, and then some!
