Linda Collier

Linda co-founded the Gabrielle Centre for Children in 2011 with her colleague and now dear friend Sarah Turner. Both Linda & Sarah had the same vision to build a centre that attracted experienced and caring therapists who all shared the same vision for working with children.


Linda graduated from The University of Sydney in 2001 in Occupational Therapy. She then went on to complete her Master of Health Science (OT) which was completed in 2006.


Linda is a mum to 3 wonderful children and lives locally in the Blue Mountains. Linda loves to cook, travel, spend time with her family and friends and has a never ending thirst for knowledge.
