In her work as a Graduate Teaching Assistant at the University of Huddersfield Georgia continues to strive to improve the university journey for other occupational therapy students who have experience of disability. Georgia, also does this in her role as one of the founding members of AbleOTUK - a network and advocacy group for occupational therapists with lived experience of disability.
