Verena is a Swiss Occupational Therapist who gained her experience mainly working in the area of orthopaedic inpatient, rheumatology outpatient and spinal cord rehabilitation. From 2010 to 2014 she worked with an not-for-profit organisation which caters to rheumatology clients, and sleep became one of her core interests. She developed a specialist service involving the assessment and adaptation of the bed and its surroundings. Since 2014 she passes on her knowledge as a lecturer for undergraduates and postgraduate professionals including OTs, as well as at conferences in the German speaking countries and beyond. One of her goals is to endorse more sleep content in OT education.
