What do you think are the best skills that you bring to your job?
With my dance background, I have an in-depth understanding of how the body moves through time and space. I love to get creative and implement functional based exercises for clients. My passion for helping others enables me to be driven and goal oriented. I very much enjoy seeing the success of others. My sporting sideline experience has been invaluable with managing both acute and chronic sporting injuries.
Favorite Conditions to Treat
Ankle and knee injuries.
From personal ankle and knee ligamentous injuries. I have been through the patient experience myself and seen the highs and lows of the rehabilitative journey. This encourages me to aim for success in my patients and their injuries. It’s also incredible what our ankles and knees allow us to do!
What are you happiest doing when you’re not working?
Swimming in the ocean, relaxing on a beach, enjoying spending time on the slopes & spending time with my favorite people.
What would be your personal motto?
Everyday is a good day
Who is someone you admire and why?
Emma Carey- Australian Author and Paraplegic. Emma Carey was an ordinary 20-something girl who sustained a spinal cord injury in a SkyDiving accident. Through long periods of rehabilitation, determination and a whole lot of resilience she has re-learned how to walk, dance, bike ride and even run/walk a marathon. Throughout her (ongoing) rehabilitative journey, she has been able to maintain such a positive outlook on life and reminds us to be grateful for all the small things.
