Movement is a part of life and I have always been interested in the way the body moves. It wasn't until I started studying physiotherapy that I got to truly appreciate the way people move and the small ways we all move differently. It is through physiotherapy that any negative change in movement can be corrected, and those who come to the clinic can expect to be pushed to improve their overall funtion and lifestyle.
I studied in Auckland, and received a Bachelor of Health Science, and a Bachelor of Health Science in Physiotherapy. My first degree really helped me understand the wide variety of factors that can influence a person's health, such as their culture and income, while the second degree allowed me to have a more hands on influence on someone's health. Even if it is only a small difference, I truly find it rewarding helping to improve someone's life through improving their movement. I understand that people all have unique lives and a unique way of looking at their health. My aim is to work with all those who come to see me to work with them to improve their function and overall performance, with the focus on attaining their own personal goals View details »
I became a physiotherapist because I enjoy working with people. Helping you to achieve your health and wellness goals and to enjoy the activities and pursuits that are meaningful is hugely rewarding. I love to learn new skills and techniques and staying at the forefront of physiotherapy is one of my key priorities.
I studied at Auckland University of Technology, graduating with a Bachelor of Health Science in Physiotherapy and I plan on continuing my post-graduate training soon. I believe that physiotherapy can improve your quality of life, from ironing out those little niggles through injury prevention or rehabilitation. With a wide range of methods from exercise to hands on techniques and interaction with a diverse team of health professionals, I will develop a unique, personally tailored plan to help you maximise all of life’s opportunities.
In my spare time I enjoy being outdoors. I love spending my time riding horses, at the beach and playing sport. Born and bred in Auckland, I plan to explore all that the South Island has to offer in the coming years. View details »
