Jill Edwards

Director, Occupational Therapist, Registered Hand Therapist, PGDip (Occupational Practice), BHSc(OT), MOTNZ

Jill gets a real buzz out of helping people regain hand function, particularly with daily tasks such as the ability to change nappies, tie their shoelaces, hold their cutlery or even shake hands. Working in hand therapy since 2007, Jill believes a customised approach is important with each person having different priorities and challenges.


Jill graduated from AUT in 2000 with a Bachelor of Health Science (Occupational Therapy) and then gained a Post Graduate Diploma in Occupational Practice ten years later. Michelle and Jill started the business in 2017 and Jill contunes to work clinically three days a week as well as mentoring therapists.


Jill has two school aged children and in her free time enjoys gardening, rowing, learning Te Reo and is perfecting her sourdough.

Kate Humphreys

Physiotherapist, Registered Hand Therapist,

MPT (Physiotherapy), PGCert HSc (Rehab), MPNZ

Kate began her Hand Therapy journey at Canberra Hospital, completed her Hand Therapy training in Wellington and joined our team in 2021. She has a Bachelor of Arts / Bachelor of Science background, and completed a Postgraduate Certificate in Human Movement Science and Master of Physiotherapy at the University of Canberra. 


Kate was immediately drawn to the challenge and complexities of the human hand. She strives to build relationships with clients, ensuring they feel comfortable, heard, and supported to achieve their goals. She loves seeing and hearing the difference Hand Therapy can make to her clients’ quality of life; whether it be returning to work, sport, music, or simply performing their daily activities.


When she’s not at work, you can often find Kate enjoying a coffee in the sun at a local café, exercising her puppy or out on the trails: running, tramping, and exploring all that Aotearoa has to offer.

Donna Webster

Occupational Therapist, Associate Hand Therapist, PGCert (Health Science), BHSc(OT), MOTNZ

Donna started working as an Occupational Therapist in 2004, after graduating from AUT with a BHsc (OT). She has worked in a variety of clinical settings and in 2020 commenced her studies in Hand Therapy. Donna has completed a Postgraduate Certificate in Health Science and has nearly completed the clinical hours to gain her full Hand Therapy registration. 


Donna enjoys working with people to reach their goals, particularly when their ability to engage in their everyday tasks has been disrupted due to altered hand function. Donna’s previous clinical experience means she is great at picking up when something else is contributing to a patient’s difficulty with rehabilitation.


When not at work, Donna can be found spending time with her family, walking her dog, gardening or at the beach.
