Pinq Business Partner & Senior Physiotherapist
From a very young age to present I have had my fair share of hospital experiences, with some injuries unfortunate and some just super unlucky. Some would call me accident prone. Some would question why I would continue to play soccer; why I would continue to run crazy distances. Maybe I am just stubborn? Or maybe through my many injuries have I learnt how resilient the human body can be? How if you put your own determination with some professional guidance then life is limitless. I wanted to be that professional that helps others get the most out of their body to reach the goals they wanted to achieve.
With this drive, I completed a four-year Bachelor of Health Science/ Masters of Physiotherapy at Western Sydney University from 2013-2016 following my HSC year in 2012. I then settled into an associate physiotherapy role at Physio Inq St Marys in March 2017. Here I was fortunate enough to be mentored by some highly experienced senior physiotherapists. The team at St Marys were very supportive of my drive to grow and progress my career with roles involving: new graduate mentoring and university student educator responsibilities. This lead to my progression into a senior physiotherapist role at Physio Inq St Marys in January 2019.
And now this drive has lead to the next chapter of my career as clinic owner at Physio Inq Harrington Park. Here with the assistance of my wonderful clinical and admin team, will continue delivering a modern clinic-based physiotherapy service to the McCarthur region that Physio Inq Harrington Park has proudly delivered in excess of 5 years. With a passion for education, I will continue to mentor new graduates to find their niche market within this vast scope of practice we call physiotherapy. With a passion for treating recreational sport/running injuries, I am looking forward to working with you all. And to all our community partners, gyms, fellow health/medical professional and future students, I look forward to strengthening our relationship into the future.
