Growing up, I participated in various sports including soccer, rugby, athletics and mixed martial arts. With an inherent level of injury risk with all my athletic pursuits, I frequently visited my local and team physiotherapist where I developed an interest with the human body.
As a physiotherapist with a particular interest in managing sports related injuries, I have worked with elite sports teams participating in the New South Wales National Premier Leagues for soccer, including Northern Tigers FC and most recently Hakoah FC.
My role as a sports physiotherapist is to provide treatment and rehabilitation of injuries and also to provide support for performance through injury prevention, maintenance and recovery interventions. I often liaise and collaborate with head and assistant coaches, strength and conditioning coaches and sports doctors.
