Past Employment
Royal North Shore in Sydney, specialising in orthopaedics, back and neck pain, trauma and sports injuries. 

What do you think are the best skills that you bring to your job?
I am passionate about empowering my patient’s recovery using best-practice, evidence-based treatment methods.   

As an avid runner who has managed many running injuries, I understand how frustrating it is for people not to be able to do the sport or hobby they love. I am driven to help my patients return to their full potential and love nothing more than working together with my patients as they strive towards a goal. 

Favourite Conditions to Treat
I love and excel in post-surgery rehabilitation, especially for knees, ankles, shoulders, and spine. I am also proficient in conservative management or rehab for osteoarthritis and have a special interest in vertigo and concussion rehab.  

What are you happiest doing when you’re not working?
We have a little boy called Bayley who keeps my husband and me very busy! When I have free time, I love to run and do Pilates.  I also love to spend time with friends, try out a new restaurant, and curling up on the couch with a new book.  

What would be your personal motto?
Find joy in the little things! 

Who is someone you admire and why?
I’ve always admired Cathy Freeman. I still vividly remember watching her win gold in the 400m Olympic final in the Sydney Olympics in 2000. She inspired me to get into running from a young age. 

Your most outstanding achievement:
To date, my son has been my greatest achievement. I have loved watching him grow and learn new things. I love seeing the world through his eyes and appreciating all aspects of his development.

What would you cook if I came round for dinner?
A nice piece of steak, with a fresh green salad, and some crispy roast potatoes… or a big seafood pasta.  

Where should we go on holiday?
Somewhere warm and tropical.
