A Hunter Valley local of 20 years and graduating from the University of Newcastle in 2015, I have spent the last five years developing my skills in treating all forms of sports injuries and shoulder-to-hand conditions. Having worked alongside surgeons and sporting teams, parents and players alike; I pride myself on being able to educate those I treat about the “how” and “why” of injury or pain, in conjunction with hands-on and exercise-based rehabilitation.
My sports of interest include Rugby league and Union, Bodybuilding and Powerlifting, Functional training and CrossFit, Basketball, Tennis and Squash, Dance and Ballet.
While primarily seeing shoulder-to-hand injuries, I welcome all presentations from top-to-toe, sporting or not. I additionally treat pelvic floor conditions, including post-surgery, postpartum, and incontinence; and have a strong interest in treating people in “pain” when there may not be a true injury or reason for it being there.
Outside of the clinic, I’m currently finishing my Masters in Sports Medicine, and a regular at CrossFit Maitland, however averagely I may be at it. I also played many sports growing up – tennis, rugby, water polo, and dance – and all this has provided me knowledge of the workings of the body as well as the expectations of the sport to help my patients both recover from injury and return better than before.
