TRACEY ALLPORT //
Originally from the North East of England, I migrated South, after I had completed my Qualification, to become a State Registered Occupational Therapist, at Coventry University.
I settled in Kent, with my family, some 15 years ago and I adore what the County has to offer. I may have originated in the North east, but Whitstable now has my heart.
I have gained experience, over the last 26 years in the NHS, Social Services, the private sector and Independent practice, in various specialities; mental health, elderly rehabilitation, paediatric brain injuries, neurology, adult brain injury and complex disabilities of all ages.
I have a passion for people, for caring and wanting individuals to reach their potential, achieve their goals and have the best quality of life possible.
In my spare time, I love to be with my family and my dog, an Irish Terrier called Penny. I love to cook and eat good healthy food, go to church and watch a good series on the TV. I’ve even been known to dabble in jewellery making projects and I love interior design. My house is an ongoing project!
