Believe it or not, I wanted to be a physio from when I was in primary school! The interest was initially sparked by a favourite older cousin who was a physio, but my love of sport fuelled the fire and I never really changed my mind. I'm still pursuing my interest in sport through working with a local football team and previously with rugby teams. I am always eager to learn new ways to help my clients and improve what I do, so I am currently studying towards a post-graduate qualification in sports physiotherapy.
While completing my degree through Otago University my eyes were opened to the diverse nature of physiotherapy beyond athletes with sports injuries, and I now enjoy working with anyone from the weekend warriors, sports fanatics, keen gardeners and the everyday working heroes! There really are so many different reasons why someone may end up needing our help.
