The human body is capable of amazing feats of movement, recovery and adaptation. Whether going about your daily activities or training for a marathon, we love to put ourselves to the test. However, sometimes our bodies cannot keep up and an injury can occur.
Growing up, I was hungry for sporting success with rowing. I would push myself too hard which unfortunately lead me down this path and I quickly became a local face at my physiotherapy clinic. Going through my own rehab journey sparked my love for the profession and my passion for helping others. This lead to me to obtaining my Bachelor of Physiotherapy from the University of Otago
Throughout my time I have enjoyed guiding individuals with a range of injuries to reach goals they once thought were impossible. I am excited to be working at Muscle People as our aim is to tailor treatments with a holistic approach to match the specific ability and needs of the patient.
In my own time I enjoy keeping active by going to the gym, falling off my snowboard at Mt Hutt, or getting out on the golf course for a hit around. View details »
Whilst growing up, a large part of my life involved sports and keeping active. Unfortunately, this paired well with a range of different injuries. Although frustrating, it meant that I spent a large amount of time working with different physiotherapists. I always admired how a physiotherapist’s treatment could contribute to a quicker and safer return to function. This sparked my interest in the field and later led to me attaining my Bachelor of Physiotherapy at the University of Otago.
During my training, I thoroughly enjoyed the challenge of working with people to not only achieve, but exceed their goals. I am excited to help people return to and reach their full potential. The team at Muscle People aim to achieve this through use of up-to-date and well-researched physiotherapy techniques that are tailored to each individual.
When I am not working you will find me close to a gym, touch field or on the golf course during summer and on the rugby pitch or on the slopes during the colder months. I find that being fit and active is the best way for me to keep a healthy work-life balance.

I was drawn to physiotherapy from my interest of the human body, how it moves and recovers from injury, as well as my passion for connecting and working with people. Having competed as a gymnast for 10 years, I am honoured to have represented New Zealand internationally. The high demand on my body as a gymnast meant I was a frequent flyer to the physio, sparking my initial interest in physiotherapy. Once I finished competing, I coached gymnastics; seeing gymnasts grow as athletes and have success affirmed my love of working alongside people to achieve goals and reach their full potential.
My time studying at Otago University further confirmed that physiotherapy is the ultimate job for me as it involves so many enjoyable aspects of my life. Being a part of the expert team at Muscle People allows me to further my skills as physiotherapist and strive for excellence in my work.
Outside of the clinic I spend time keeping active through running, going to the gym or exploring different parts of the country by walking and tramping. I also enjoy catching up and socialising with my friends and family.
