Meet a Provider

What is the most common piece of advice you give to your patients?

When it comes to your rehab, don’t push yourself into pain, discomfort is ok, but we don’t want your home care to be painful!

How can workplaces get the most out of you?

I like to be well utilised when I’m on site, whether it’s loading me up with patients or picking my brain for advice. In our industry we’re always learning new things, and I’d be happy to investigate any issues you may be experiencing to see if we can come up with a solution. 

How do you stay healthy?

I enjoy being physically active, whether that’s getting in the water, going on hikes, or playing team sports. I’m onto my third year of playing soccer and absolutely loving it. In the past couple of years I’ve significantly cut down my meat intake and eat a balanced diet, while trying my best not to overindulge my sweet tooth!

When you aren’t onsite, what are you doing?

In addition to being a provider, I also work as the research and development lead, which means I get to look into ways to improve our services and onsite experience. This can involve reviewing the research to ensure our practices remain evidence-based, staying on top of emerging technologies, and designing projects that help our company continue to flourish and develop.
