I am an Accredited Exercise Physiologist, having graduated with a Masters of Clinical Exercise Physiology (Rehabilitation) from Charles Sturt University. I moved to Canberra from a small rural town in NSW to begin my health and fitness career. I studied a Diploma of Fitness before moving into a Remedial massage (soft tissue) diploma at CIT. I have furthered my knowledge and understanding of body mechanics with successful completion of a Bachelor of Health Science (Complementary Medicine) and a Masters of Clinical Exercise Physiology (Rehabilitation). With 20 years of experience as a remedial massage therapist I bring a wealth of musculoskeletal knowledge and experience to my exercise physiology work. Through my career I have treated patients from all age groups and developed clinical experience across musculoskeletal, cardiorespiratory and neurological conditions. I enjoy seeing the positive effects exercise has on a wide range of conditions and believe that taking an individualised and holistic approach to treatment, with a strong emphasis on client education, is crucial to improving health outcomes. I enjoy all aspects of exercise physiology, but have a particular interest in neurological disorders, vestibular conditions and musculoskeletal rehabilitation. I have also completed additional training in hydrotherapy and really enjoy leading the water based exercise program here at Canberra Allied Health. Whether it is improving quality of life, quality of movement or quality of performance, I am determined to help clients achieve their goals.

Outside of the clinic you’ll find me running the trails or a half marathon, bike riding or bushwalking with my family.
