Women's Health Physiotherapist
I grew up in the Hills as the eldest of 4. I love the chaos and noise of a large family. My younger siblings may say I have a tendency to be a little bossy….I disagree, and say I have always provided helpful encouragement for those in need!
I have always loved sport and played pretty much anything on offer. Due to this I sustained a few injuries and I knew from 13 years old that I wanted to be a physio – I haven’t been disappointed with the career choice.
I spent 7 years working in the Public Health System in country NSW before moving back to the Hills. I feel so lucky to now be able to focus on my passion for Women’s Health Physiotherapy.
If I’m not at work you will find me relaxing by the pool reading a book after my morning Pilates – oh whoops no you won’t I nearly forgot…. I have two small children! So I guess I will be cooking, cleaning, wiping noses and bottoms, breaking up arguments, finding toys, confiscating toys, kissing knees better, applying band aids, “doing the propeller”, repeating myself, eating sand, jumping on the trampoline and watching one child in particular show a complete imbalance between swimming skill and confidence levels.
