After growing up in Whangarei I decided to head south to Otago University where I completed my Bachelor of Physiotherapy in 2015. After the cold of Dunedin I was ready to move back home for a couple of years where I worked at a private practice and with various Northland rugby teams.
I then moved down to Mount Maunganui in 2018 for a bit of a change. I was lucky enough to get an opportunity to work with the Bay of Plenty Steamers in 2019. This started my love for physiotherapy in a rugby setting as it was my first time being in a full-time professional sport environment. I love the challenge of helping manage athletes to return to sport post injury as well as ensuring preventative measures were taken to prevent injuries occurring in the first place.
I returned to Whangarei briefly to take up a contract with Northland Taniwha and then most recently have been commuting to Hamiliton to work with the Chiefs rugby team. I am currently excited to be working at the Foundation Clinic where my role will be split between Bay of Plenty Rugby and private practice.
Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my fiancé and prepping for our first baby due in December. Otherwise I love catching up with mates (normally over a poor round of golf) and getting down to Blake Park to watch the Mount play some footy.
I look forward to assisting you with your rehabilitation and recovery needs in clinic.
