Doctor of Physiotherapy – Melbourne University
B. Ex Sc – Wollongong University
Titleist Performance Institute Certified

Growing up in a large sporting family, the competitive streak was well and truly ingrained in me from an early age. This competitive drive and a love of all things sport led to the inevitable injuries throughout the years. It was when having physio treatment for a back injury suffered snowboarding that I began to think that physiotherapy could be the career for me.

I began studying a Bachelor of Exercise Science at the University of Wollongong, while working as a personal trainer and coach at a local gym. After graduating, I moved on to study the Doctor of Physiotherapy program at the University of Melbourne while working as personal trainer. The combination of a B. ExSc and years of experience in the fitness industry helped to focus my interest on exercise and movement rehabilitation, and this is still a focus of mine today.

Having the opportunity to positively impact people’s lives, and to enable them to continue to do what makes them happy, is the reason I am a physiotherapist. I am committed to utilising the latest evidence to getting you back to doing what you love to do and optimising your rehabilitation to achieve your goals.
