  • Bachelor of Physiotherapy

  • Bachelor of Exercise and Sports Science

After completing my double degree in Physiotherapy and Sports science in 2016 I worked hard to gain experiences in as many areas of musculoskeletal Physiotherapy as possible. Clinically, my roles since graduating have included working in an Emergency Department in Tasmania, Post-op Orthopaedics in Darwin as well as in a specialised Sports Clinic, alongside Sports and Occupational Physicians in Central Queensland. These three roles have given me a large range of skills and experience in both acute, chronic and post-operative musculoskeletal injuries.

In a sporting context I have worked across multiple codes at varying levels, including State League Netball, football, rugby and athletics which I have been involved in at a national championship level. This has allowed me to gain valuable skills in working with athletes of all levels with a variety of injuries, with a special interest in running mechanics, training loads and overuse injuries.

In my spare time I continue to train and compete at a state level in athletics as a middle distance runner, as well as sit on the committee for Perth Track and Field Club.
