I graduated in 2019 with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy at the University of South Australia and have since worked in private practice, treating a range of musculoskeletal and orthopaedic conditions. I have also gained experience working in an orthopaedic hospital setting at Burnside Hospital and with the Port Adelaide Football Club over the last 3 years.
I chose to become a physiotherapist as growing up in Port Lincoln, I was always an active kid and was involved in a variety of sports including football, cricket, soccer, tennis and swimming. Like most youngsters, I had my fair share of sporting injuries and became a bit of a staple at my local physio clinic. These experiences sparked my interest in physiotherapy and drove my passion for health and wellbeing.
I believe in developing a close relationship with my patients to provide long term improvements in pain and dysfunction, rather than temporary fixes. I have a particular interest in combining manual therapies, such as massage and dry needling, with exercise-based rehabilitation to build strong and resilient bodies. I believe in empowering my patients through education to help develop sustainable lifestyle habits, support self-management strategies and prevent further injury.
My main areas of Interest are:
- Sports injuries
- Post-operative/orthopaedic rehabilitation
- Gym-based rehabilitation
- Knee, ankle and shoulder injuries
Outside of work, I try to keep myself fit and active through gym and functional training, which compensates for my love for food. I also love to travel, surfing and snowboarding when I can, and am a big fan of AFL football.
I grew up in Port Lincoln on the Eyre Peninsula and truly believe we have the best beaches in the world.
