Olivia graduated from the University of Otago (New Zealand) with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy in 2023. She has recently moved to Adelaide to start her career. Over the course of her training she was involved in placements in both inpatient hospital settings as well as in private practices. Over these placements she found a pattern of enjoyment when helping people regain their mobility and independence through exercise.

Olivia has a focus on supporting patients to have the skills and knowledge to be active and involved in their recovery. Olivia has had her fair share of sporting related injuries from growing up being very involved in the sporting community. She had always enjoyed training and activity but as she became more involved in the prevention and recovery of injuries her interest in physio grew. This has been fundamental in shaping her desire to help patients be actively involved in their recovery.

Areas of interest:

  • Musculoskeletal injuries & conditions
  • Neurological conditions
  • Maintaining/improving mobility
  • Return to sport

Olivia grew up in Christchurch New Zealand, and loves any opportunity to talk about home or give NZ travel recommendations. In her free time she is planning on exploring Adelaide and the surrounding areas.

Fun Fact; Olivia grew up primarily playing netball (for up to 3 teams in one season), alongside volleyball and tennis. Through Uni she became more involved with coaching netball and stepped aside from playing to pursue this further.
