Areas of interest:


Sports : Cricket, Rugby, Soccer


I completed my degree at the University of Otago in NZ in 2014, since then I have been working in a musculoskeletal private practice in Wellington. I have a passion for helping people and working closely with them to achieve their goals and improve their health and wellbeing. I have developed a keen interest in the sports physiotherapy area and over the last 4 years have worked with cricket, soccer and rugby clubs. I have particularly enjoyed working within the Cricket discipline and it is an area I wish to pursue and develop. I also look forward to gaining more experience with different sports and activities.  My interest in sports has stemmed from a long commitment as a competitive swimmer, water polo player and netballer, with also both my brothers having played at high levels of Cricket from young ages.

I decided to make the move to Brisbane to progress my career as a Physiotherapist and gain more experience of how the profession works in different parts of the world. My family also relocated to Brisbane in 2012 and this has been a big pull for me to be able to spend more time with my parents and siblings.
