I began my career as a healthcare professional in 2006 and have been passionate about my work ever since.
I originally trained as a Remedial Massage Therapist but quickly became fascinated with Osteopathic Medicine. I was impressed by the holistic and comprehensive care I received in my recovery from a sports-related spinal injury and saw firsthand how effective Osteopathy was for helping people manage their health and improve their lifestyle. Determined to always provide the best care possible, I enrolled to study Osteopathy at Victoria University in 2010 and completed a Bachelor of Science and Master of Health Science (Osteopathy).
With a tendency to dabble in various forms of exercise including martial arts, aerial circus and the occasional run, I am no stranger to the frequent bumps and knocks that can occur, not only during fitness activities, but also just in day-to-day life. I also know how important it is to get back to doing what you want to do, and need to do, as soon as possible.
I draw on more than 10 years of experience as a manual therapist and an advanced knowledge of anatomy, physiology and pain science to provide an integrated and holistic healthcare service. By always utilising the latest evidence to guide my practice, I blend traditional Osteopathic techniques with clinical rehabilitation to make sure all aspects of my patient’s conditions are addressed and correctly managed.
The complexities of the human body never cease to amaze me, and I always enjoy learning more about what makes us all tick. I am passionate about sharing this interest and knowledge with others in my role as Senior Lecturer for Myotherapy at Endeavour College of Natural Health where I coordinate and teach a diverse range of subjects for the Bachelor of Health Science degree including anatomy, biomechanics, mobilisation techniques and neurophysiology.
If you were to ever see me outside of work, I would probably be doing one of three things; having a run with my dog, enjoying lunch at a local pub or spending quality time with my young family.
