What made you want to be a physio?
I always knew I wanted to work in health and help people in some way and have a love of all sport. I liked the idea of interacting with people while working out solutions for them through physio and have loved it ever since I started.
What I’d like you to know before you come to see me:
I will be asking heaps of questions so have some goal in mind of what you want to be able to do, whether its return to a sport, do the laundry without pain or a 50km hike. I am also an animal lover, so please come prepared with pictures or funny stories of your pets.
Most asked clinical question:
What’s the fastest way to get better?
What condition do you enjoy treating the most?
Lower limb injuries related to sports, because I love trying to come up with exercises which are targeted to the sport or activity that you play.
Worst injury you’ve ever had?
I’ve always been pretty lucky and have only really sprained my ankles a few times playing netball. Played through a carnival once to find out at the end that I had a broken finger and broke my toe once (that was painful enough).
When not physio-ing where might we find you?
Playing netball or Oz Tag, walking my dogs or hiding in my bedroom reading a book or binging on Netflix.
If stuck on a desert island what are your 3 must have items?
My dogs (unless my partner is reading this and then him of course)
Endless amounts of chocolate croissants
A kindle with internet access
What is your super power?
Making people feel happy about exercising (or not so happy, but they do it anyway)
“Don’t count the days, make the days count” – Something to live by
Found playing netball, OZ tag, walking the dogs or chilling with a good book.
