What led you to Elevate?
During my last year of physiotherapy, I volunteered at the Cerebral Palsy Centre in Nepal. It was a wonderful learning experience. Now I have the same type of creative opportunity with sporting and general injuries by working at Elevate and being supported by the best team in the business.
What do you appreciate about Elevate?
The multidisciplinary environment at Elevate is a fantastic resource. Also, the ability to communicate with the other practitioners for help and advice to ensure the best outcome is achieved for the patient is something I highly value.
What are your core beliefs about wellness and health?
Balance and happiness are my keys to wellness, if you feel good – you look good too.
What mistakes do patients make?
Adherence to tasks is something people are always in constant battle with. With the busyness of our society, sometimes priorities of injuries and niggles can be pushed down on the list of things to do and can create bigger issues down the track.
What key health lessons do you like to impart to patients?
Taking charge of your health is always the first thing, we can always lead people to their destination, but we cannot change it unless they change. Respecting your body by keeping it active and healthy is very important, but also listening to it when you’re having trouble is fundamental to a healthy lifestyle.

What do you enjoy about your job?
The ability to help and make people better, it’s such an invigorating experience especially when people are motivated and determined to lead a happy, healthy lifestyle.
Tell us a little about your credentials?
After graduating from a Bachelor of Exercise and Sports science, I completed my Masters of Physiotherapy straight away at the University of Sydney. I have been working with Elevate ever since and am currently a physiotherapist at North Sydney Bears NRL team.
What are your extracurricular passions?
Growing up I was exposed to plenty of different sports, competing for many years in sports such as athletics, netball and swimming, but the sport in which I have truly connected with is dance and the principles in which it teaches. I also have a massive passion for sports and spinal related injuries and hypermobility, especially in dancers. Besides that, I love a good footy match whether it be NRL, AFL or NFL I’ll always be cheering on the sidelines.
