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. Working at Muscle People has helped me realise just how much more there is to a simple movement, and how much physiotherapy can achieve. 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 passionate about sports and am a people person, enjoying interacting and communicating with all ages. This led me to choose a career in physiotherapy, gaining my degree at the University of Otago.
I enjoy the challenge and diversity that a Physiotherapy career provides and it’s constant learning environment. I believe Physiotherapy is a very fast paced and growing profession that plays an important role in our society, in getting people moving again. I get a buzz out of helping others, young and old and seeing them improve and achieve their goals. I believe exercise and being able to move to your full potential, is vital to your overall well-being.
My interests and sports I enjoy are, Surf Life Saving, Surfing, Running, Football, Touch, Waterpolo and Tramping, whenever I can find a spare moment! I have had a large involvement with Sumner Surf Life Saving club over the past sixteen years, racing at a national level and was very humbled to have recently been awarded New Zealand Surf Lifesaving Volunteer of the Year for my involvement within the organisation.
I am excited to have joined the talented Muscle People Team and look forward to every day, in a career that I am passionate about. View details »
I discovered my fascination in the human body and movement through my background in dance and gymnastics. I was always amazed at all the different ways the body moved and how it changed and adapted with practice and training. Pushing the muscles and joints to the extremes with performance and elite level competition, I often found myself or my team mates injured and unable to perform. Most of my injuries required time away from performance and many sessions spent with the physio, trying to problem solve and get back to optimal function.
Through my own experiences and my passion for helping those around me, I decided I wanted to follow physiotherapy as a career. I studied a Bachelor of Health Science/ Master of Physiotherapy at Western Sydney University, Australia. After a sometime spent travelling New Zealand, I knew I wanted to live and work here, moving to Christchurch in early 2018 and started with the amazing team at The Muscle People. View details »
