I grew up locally in Wagga Wagga, going through the Catholic school system attending St Michael and Trinity, before moving to Sydney to study physiotherapy. I was fortunate to have to have a number of close mentors throughout my undergraduate years, particularly with the National Rugby League club I was involved with, the North Sydney Bears.
This provided me with a constant thirst for knowledge and understanding of teamwork and the benefits of having peers as mentors. It gave me an excellent grounding working with elite sportsmen, surgeons and sports physicians. After moving back to Wagga to raise our family, we had the ambition of developing a high quality team to work with on solving people's problems and allowing them to live a happy active life!
This led me to focus on mentoring junior staff and opening our doors to undergraduate students for the past eight years, and we are now taking postgraduate students to assist in their journey to titling. We have developed a career pathway and dedicated orientation programs, but also the scope in a regional Centre like Wagga to accommodate specialist practice. We love to show off our facilities and team and are excited to meet like-minded professionals.
And more of the team!
