Profile

I know that every patient who comes through our clinic door has their own story. That’s what I love about my job - meeting people from all walks of life and understanding what matters most to them so I can help them get back to doing what it is they love.

This comes down to really listening, and taking into account every aspect of their lifestyle in their healing process. It goes without saying that as we go through this journey, I really get to know my patients. I know it’s important to make it comfortable, enjoyable and fun. You can count on me to break the ice with an inappropriate joke if necessary.

I graduated as a physiotherapist from AUT in 2010, going on to work at Sydney’s Royal North Shore Hospital. Early in my career I developed a love for treating trauma, burns, orthopaedics and neurological rehabilitation. Returning to NZ in 2013, I began my career in Hand Therapy, going on to complete my Postgraduate Certificate in Rehabilitation.
