My journey into Exercise Physiology began when my Mum sat me down at the tender age of 16 and rather ominously said to me, ‘whatever you do, do not become a musician’. Given I come from a line of talented career musicians, this came as something of a shock.

Needless to say, I followed my mother’s sage advice and enrolled into Exercise and Sports Science at the University of New South Wales to pursue a career around my other great passion, sport. After my first year in this degree, I discovered that I had far more interest in working with everyday people than I did working with athletes. I then transferred into a Bachelor of Exercise Physiology, and have only looked back once or twice since then.

Over the course of my career, I have had the privilege of working with a wide variety of people with an even wider variety of injuries and health conditions. While I enjoy working with any and all conditions, I’ve developed a keen interest in the treatment of chronic pain and musculoskeletal injuries (perhaps as a result of rolling one too many ankles). I endeavour to make treatment fun, accessible, and inclusive for all, while also focusing on achieving the best outcomes for you.

I am always happy to have a chat, so if you’d like to discuss how I might best be able to help you achieve your health goals, or to simply tell me how awful a basketball team the Orlando Magic are, please don’t hesitate to reach out. I can be reached at
