Rhiannon combined her entrepreneurial skills with her passion and vision for a fresh-thinking and dynamic approach to case management when she created Stokes Case Management in 2015. She is a qualified occupational therapist (OT) with over 20 years experience within the health and social care sector and has practised as a case manager for almost a decade.
It’s her ambition to continue to change the shape of the case management sector, to ensure a qualitative, creative and highly personalised approach as standard, and deliver the unexpected for clients. Through Stokes, Rhiannon wants to show that careful collaboration across the healthcare, legal and affiliated industries can help provide an effective, high quality and positive journey for all clients – no matter what challenges and complexities they present.
Rhiannon has also worked as an Expert Witness during the last six years and brings to the company a wealth of experience of dealing with legal professionals and the litigation system.
As the clinical director of our company, Rhiannon continues to hold a clinical caseload of clients with severe and complex disabilities including spinal and brain injuries. This means she has intimate understanding of client’s needs and where her team and services need to innovate
Rhiannon is very passionate about there being a variety of services available for people with disabilities. She sat on the steering group for Merthyr Headway whilst it was being established and has been a volunteer within the branch. In 2014 she became a coordinator for The Silver Lining Charity and has brought this exciting and dynamic support to Wales.
Rhiannon enjoys teaching and educating others about the role of Occupational Therapy and Case Management and is currently a guest lecturer at the Health Science School at Cardiff University and also presents at various conferences around Wales and the UK.
