Hola, Kia Ora and Hello. Originally from Argentina I arrived in New Zealand in 2002. After finishing all my schooling in Tauranga I travelled to the cold south to complete my Bachelor of Physiotherapy graduating in 2017. Throughout my studies I was able to work with local rugby teams. This experience developed my passion for sports physiotherapy and side line management. In 2018 I will be working with Mount Maunganui in the winter rugby season.
I was fortunate to get the new graduate position at Bureta Physiotherapy which allows me to live in the incredible Bay of Plenty and work with passionate and experienced health professionals.
Areas of interest are injury prevention through early assessment and training/strength programs to ensure optimum outcomes.
When I am not in the clinic or on the side of a rugby field you can find me singing at the occasional open mic night or with my latin band. I also enjoy hiking, mountain biking and/or any sport in the outdoors.

Liv graduated from Auckland in 2009 and has since worked mainly in the musculoskeletal field, with some vocational rehabilitation making an appearance in the past 5 years. She completed her masters degree with honours in 2017, and has post graduate qualifications in acupuncture and dry needling. She is quite interested in doing some further professional development in the women’s health field, particularly pre and post-partum, as she believes appropriate physiotherapy has a huge role to play in pregnancy and beyond. My physio ‘style’ is a combination of hands on treatment alongside effective rehabilitation to ensure patients make a full recovery and can self-manage their injury. View details »
After graduating with a Bachelor of Health Science - Physiotherapy from Auckland University of Technology, I was very fortunate to have the opportunity to return to the Bay of Plenty and be part of the Bureta physio team.
I enjoy keeping active, being outdoors and spending time with family.
I have played a variety of sports, in particular football, throughout my school years and have had my own fair share of injuries. This developed my interest in anatomy and revealed the importance of physio within rehab and injury prevention.
I am excited to further develop my skills alongside such a supportive and experienced team.
I look forward to meeting and working alongside people and making a difference through enabling them to achieve their goals and reach their full potential.
