After graduating from the Australian Catholic University I entered the world of private practice musculoskeletal and sports physiotherapy in regional Victoria where I enjoyed working in a large established team servicing patients and communities throughout West and East Gippsland. Over this time I was able to work with a varied caseload of acute and chronic patients consisting of paediatric, geriatrics, sports as well as NDIS and Work-Cover. I enjoyed running hydrotherapy groups and instructing in a Clinical Pilates studio.
Implementing best care for my patients’ rehabilitation journey using clinical exercise, mind-body connection, holistic as well as evidence-based manual therapies is my physiotherapy philosophy.

My passion for all things Women’s Health ignited after volunteering in vulnerable communities in Nepal (2015) and Vanuatu (2018) where I worked closely with a team of midwives. I found myself especially passionate about Women’s Health, including ante-natal, post-natal, continence, sexual health and returning to everyday life activities and exercise after having bubs. Following this passion I have embarked on a Post Graduate with the Australian Physiotherapy Association as well as the University of Melbourne in Women’s Pelvic Health and hope to empower as many women as possible to feel strong, confident and powerful within their own body.
