Hannah Swifte
Principal Occupational Therapist; Owner


Hannah graduated her occupational therapy bachelor degree in 2013. She has always had a passion for working with children and has developed a very special interest in the area of childhood behaviour and sensory processing. In 2015, Hannah founded Learn & Grow OT due to love for working in paediatrics, but also to fill the forever growing need for private paediatric occupational therapy in Mackay.

Hannah has 2 young children of her own who support her ever aching love for helping kids reach their goals in a fun and exciting way. 

Amber Brown
Occupational Therapist


Amber is a Mackay local who became a part of our team in early 2020. She graduated her bachelor of occupational therapy (Honours) in 2019 where we were lucky enough to have her jump straight on board for her post-graduate year to offer her enthusiastic attitude to our LGOT family. 

As a very family-oriented person, Amber shares our passion for working with kids and their families to reach their goals. 


Georgia is another Mackay local who joined the LGOT team in early 2021. Georgia graduated her bachelor of occupational therapy alongside Amber in 2019 where she spent her post-graduate year working in adults mental health. An increased interest in developing her skills in the paediatric world of OT drove Georgia to join our team where she is now a great asset for our service as she brings along a bubbly personality and a driving passion for supporting children reach their true potential in everyday life.
