I have always been heavily involved in sport and physical fitness. I have grown up playing rugby union in the winter and competing in athletic competitions at the now demolished QE2 stadium in the summer. I now play European Handball for Canterbury and spend a lot of weekends travelling to Wellington and Auckland to compete. I have always taken a very meticulous approach to playing sport, which has led to a drive to constantly be better, and to find the knowledge of how to be better. I am now passionate in working with others, and helping them to simply be better, stronger and fitter.
Since graduating from Otago University I have been working in the health and fitness industry for 5 years. I have lived and worked overseas in Australia and Europe training with people ranging from your 9-5 office workers to high performance athletes. Highlights of my time overseas includes being the head trainer for a rugby union team in Southern England, and running my own personal training business in central London.
Since being back in Christchurch I have been working within the clinical population and have recently attained a post-graduate certificate in rehabilitation. I have been working with our physiotherapists to provide functional rehabilitation, injury prevention and strength and conditioning to all our clients. These services enhances our client’s journey, enabling us to lift people to the best of their abilities, from running after the kids to running a marathon. View details »
I have always had a passion for helping people. I believe that everyone deserves a chance to live a happy and healthy lifestyle, without being slowed down or affected by injuries.

Aiding recovery from injury is the main role of a physiotherapist, however, just as important as that is preventing this or a related compensatory injury from reoccuring View details »
I am a passionate physiotherapist and I am excited to have joined the vibrant Muscle People Physiotherapy team. I love my job for a number of reasons; meeting new people, problem solving, continuous learning and helping people in their pursuit of excellence. I believe that your health is your wealth and enjoy working with people to achieve their activity goals.
I studied at Otago University to achieve a Bachelor of Physiotherapy. After graduating I worked as a physiotherapist in Christchurch for a couple years before travelling overseas. I had a fantastic time exploring many new places through Europe and North America, and have now returned to Christchurch.
My hobbies outside of work include sailing, skiing, going to the gym, swimming and surfing. I enjoy embracing the outdoors rain or shine and have completed an Outward Bound course. I am a keen underwater hockey player and am proud to have represented New Zealand nationally and internationally. View details »
