My Story

I have long been fascinated by the connections between movement and the mind. This deep curiosity, alongside my love of sport, led me to study Physiotherapy at Curtin University. Following graduation, I moved to Melbourne and worked in private practice in the inner suburbs of Fitzroy and Richmond.

It was during this time I developed a passion for women’s and pelvic health, working predominately with women throughout their pregnancy who were experiencing pain or simply wanting to become stronger.

Upon returning from Melbourne, I completed my post graduate qualification in women's & men's pelvic health at Curtin University.

Over my career I have had the pleasure of working within multidisciplinary teams and learnt from a wide variety of health professionals and have worked across a variety of fields including wellness, sports and musculoskeletal physiotherapy, chronic disease management and pelvic health.

I joined Painless in 2022, and am excited to continue helping patients better manage their pain.

My Approach

My approach falls strongly on the connection between the mind and body. Pain is an individualised experience and no two patients are the same. It is for this reason that I take a holistic, integrated approach to the treatment and management of pain.

Multidisciplinary care is key in the management of pain and I aim to be on the journey with you from start to finish.

With my passion for pelvic health, I believe strongly in the importance of trauma informed care. I combine evidence-based physiotherapy, pain science and specific movement rehabilitation to deliver a best practice approach to treatment.

As a pain coach, my role is to listen to your story, and work with you to create a treatment plan that is focussed around your unique goals.
