I have always had a passion for science, human anatomy and how the body functions and moves, making a career in physiotherapy seemed fitting for me. I enjoy helping people understand how their injury has occurred and taking a holistic approach to their treatment. At Muscle People we look at the whole body and address any other contributing factors that may be linked to your pain. With the use of our wide range of facilities and classes we endeavour to enhance your performance and prevent further injury.
I obtained my Bachelor of Physiotherapy at the University of Otago. My 4 years of training really confirmed my passion for working with people and helping them work towards and achieve their goals. I get a real buzz out of seeing the joy on my clients faces when you can help ease their pain or take their performance to the next level. It is hugely rewarding seeing others exceed their goals and be able to return to their hobbies they love. Here at Muscle people we have a great team and environment to help you get back on your feet, whether that be on the sports field or just getting to the grocery store.
Outside of work I like to keep myself active and enjoy the outdoors. In the warmer months I'll be on the water, or walking and exploring our backyard. In the winter you'll find me up the mountain skiing or snowboarding. I enjoy keeping myself fit in the gym and have been involved in many sports over the years, such as netball, tennis and hockey.

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.

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 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 »
