M. Physiotherapy/ B. Exercise Science (APAM) Women’s Health Physiotherapist
Why did you become a physiotherapist?
I have always loved helping people and encouraging an active lifestyle. I have participated in Pilates since I was 16 years old and it is the absolute highlight of my day teaching Pilates reformer classes. I have a passion for helping women, because women often put themselves last on the list, so when they come in for physiotherapy you know it is serious! I love empowering women to feel fit, strong, and like themselves again without pain holding them back.
