I work in Bondi Junction. 

My Story:

I was born and raised in Australia’s capital city, Canberra. There I completed both my schooling and University studies before deciding to move up the highway to sunny Sydney in 2018. I spent most of my childhood playing sport, I’ve always loved being outside and running around. From when I was about nine years old, my sister and I would get home from school and run straight over to our neighbour’s house to play touch footy and soccer until dark. It was there that I learnt my love for soccer and it’s been a great ride ever since. I was fortunate enough to represent the Australian Schoolgirls for two tours and have got to see some amazing parts of the world thanks to this round-ball game. One of my coaches was a Physiotherapist for the Matildas, the Brumbies and the mighty Canberra Raiders. It was his stories and experiences combined with my overwhelming interest in how the body works that landed me in the wonderful world of Physiotherapy.

If I’m not at work my absolute favourite thing to do is lay on the beach with a great book. I love being outdoors (especially in the sun), traveling and having my family around.


What makes me different:

I have been fortunate enough to work with many amazing athletes in cricket, soccer, futsal, volleyball, rugby and AFL. I have attended both the volleyball and futsal Australian Junior National Championships as ACT’s Head Physiotherapist and have especially enjoyed working with these adolescent teams.

I love working with adolescents.  I love learning about what makes them tick, the types of injuries that they are susceptible to, and the way to best manage these injuries.  I have realised that when treating one part of the body you must also consider what the rest of the body is doing, and this is especially true for adolescents when their body is rapidly growing!  I also especially love treating knees.

Expect that when you come and see me I will try to understand you as a person.  A big aim will be to figure out what your specific goals are and then of course figure out how we can achieve them together.
