What do you like most about being an Allied Health Assistant (AHA)?

I like the diversity of being an AHA, the fact that we can work across multiple different disciplines within Allied Health. I enjoy being very hands on with the patients, being able to assist them with their therapy goals and see the improvement that they make each day. As an AHA within Public Health I like the fact we have the opportunity to work in both the hospitals setting and in patients’ homes/ community.

If you could be a superhero who would you choose and why?

If I could be a superhero, I would be Superman, because some days it feels like there is never enough time in the day to get things done and he has the ability to have super speed.
