I completed a Bachelor of Biomedical and Anatomical Science and subsequent Bachelor of Physiotherapy (Hons) at the University of Queensland. I lectured in Anatomical science, with extensive time spent in the cadaver labs, which has set the foundations of my clinical reasoning in Physiotherapy. In 2008 Glenn and I decided to make the move to Central Queensland with a 2-year plan of gaining valuable clinical experience and to help those in need of health services and we simply have never wanted to leave!
Early on in my career I worked in the hospital setting, however I quickly realised my passion was working in the clinical private practice where the diversity, complexity of presentations and the ability to make long term significant changes to patients lives continues to drive my clinical practice daily. I have been fortunate to be able to work in a variety of settings, from aged care to mining sites, from patients with significant disability to national and international athletes. I have found that my patients have been my best educators and are the ones who have driven me ask the valuable question of “Why?” and to do further training in areas of interest. As such I have completed further training in Women’s and Pelvic health, Cancer rehabilitation, Chronic pain management, Paediatrics, TMJ dysfunction, Clinical Pilates and Acupuncture and Western dry needling.
As part of my role as Principal Physiotherapist at Vector Health and Performance I work closely with our incredible team of intelligent, motivated, and caring clinicians and team members who strive to deliver our mission of providing unrivalled care and transformations in self-belief and physical capacity to the Central Queensland community.
I can honestly say that one of the best feelings is to be able to end each day, knowing that myself and our team has helped someone feel even just a little bit better than when they first walked through the clinic doors.
Outside of my working life I am fortunate to be the mum of two beautiful, caring, energic young people. As a family playing sport, being outdoors whether it be bike riding , hiking, swimming or fishing are all pursuits that we enjoy. And in those very rare quite times I love to curl up with a good coffee and great book!
