Hailing from the sunny, east coast, beach city of Newcastle, Australia, sport has always been a hugely influential part of my life. I started my sporting journey at the age of four, competing in track athletics until I was 17 years old, establishing myself as a competitive 80m hurdler. I’ve also been lucky enough to play a high level of touch footy, league tag, soccer and interestingly… have dabbled in Muay Thai for the last 5 years. As an Aussie, I’m a die hard Rugby League fan, and you’ll often hear me ranting and raving about the NRL, and my favourite team the Sydney Roosters.
Like most physiotherapists, I found myself pursuing this career after a number of significant injuries hindered my journey to professional sport. I so badly still wanted to be a part of that world, and thus… here I am! I am a firm believer that movement is medicine, and I know for me personally, when I’m moving my body is when I feel my best. There is nothing more rewarding than helping and guiding others to reach their movement goals, whether that be spending more time digging in the garden, or playing at the highest level of rugby.
I graduated from the University of Newcastle with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy (honours). I have been fortunate enough to work in the NRL & NSWRL on a number of occasions, with the Newcastle Knights, Gold Coast Titans NRLW, Macquarie Scorpions, and most notably as the Australian Prime Minister’s 13 head physiotherapist in their test match against Papua New Guinea in 2022. Whilst I love my rugby league (evidently) I have also done 5 seasons in the Northern League 1 Football (soccer) competition in Australia.
I love meeting new people and helping them achieve their goals. I am dedicated to listening, and working collaboratively to make a treatment plan that is individual to you and your needs!
