Karleen Lemin

Registered Hand Therapist

I  graduated as a Physiotherapist  from AUT in 2003 and worked  at Middlemore Hospital for 15 years. 8 years of this was on the acute wards in the National Burns Unit and the Plastics wards, specialising in Burns and Plastics and Acute Hands.  This is where I found my passion for Hand Therapy and have worked the last 2 years in the outpatient Hand  Team at the Manukau Super Clinic (MSC), before starting at Handworks in 2018. I am currently working mostly in the private sector with 1 day still at MSC.  The combination of working in both the private and public Hand Therapy clinics has enabled me to gain experience in treating a wide variety of Hand Therapy conditions.

I completed my post Graduate Certificate in Rehabilitation in 2012 and achieved my Hand Therapy registration in 2013.

In my spare time, I enjoy keeping fit, traveling and spending time with family and friends.
