I work in Bondi Junction.

My story:

I grew up in “The shire” in a little suburb called Bonnet Bay.  I was good at science (yes, maybe a little bit of a nerd…don’t tell anybody!) and loved netball; the combination of which led me to become a physio.  I’ve always been interested in staying healthy, in being fit.  I enjoy running, although the only real running I do at the moment is running after my two handsome (and extremely active) boys- Bob 3 and Fred 1.

I now live in Tempe (yes, right under the flight path!) with my husband Marty, my two kids and my cat Reginald.

I love to read, I love to sleep and I love my job!

What makes me different:

I love treating women of all ages.  I treat anything from pelvic floor problems to pelvic pain to neck pain to hip pain.  I particularly love to treat women throughout their pregnancy and enjoy helping them in the post natal period.  I understand the toll pregnancy and motherhood takes on your body and I know what you need to do to help it along.

I believe communication is extremely important.  If you don’t understand what is going on in your body, then you are unlikely to be able to make a lasting change.  So expect a lot of chatting and a lot of questions if you come see me!
