The best part of being a Physio is…

the people. I love getting to know someone and finding out what drives them, then trying to incorporate that into their rehabilitation.


What gets you up in the morning?

The knowledge that people are relying on me to help them get better.


My favourite injury to treat…

anything muscular. I’m a big fan of hands on/massage type treatments.


You'll often find me…

in, on or around the ocean. Spearfishing is my addiction, I love embracing my inner hunter-gatherer and heading out to get a fresh feed of fish, crays or shellfish.


My favourite food has to be…

hard to pinpoint one food but if you combine chilli, corriander and lime I will eat anything covered in that!


My favourite place to eat is …

at home when Dad has decided to get a bit fancy with the cooking. He is a master of asian flavours.

My dream holiday goes something like this…

remote pacific island, water as clear as gin, big fish and a few cheeky beers.


Favorite song right now? …

Hmmmm...


I haven't laughed so hard since…

one of my friends was making a berocca and accidently got ALL of the tablets wet! He was running around the kitchen madly with a frothing tube in one hand and glass of water in the other freaking out. Meanwhile me and my other mates were rolling on the floor in tears…but I guess you had to be there.


Ten years ago…

I would have been at the beginning of high school with a fresh pair of braces.


If I wasn’t me I’d be…

a Fishing charter captain.


The thing/s I am most proud of…

my awesome friends and family, they are the best people to be around in any mood or situation.


I am the most likely at ONFORM to…

win second place at a beauty contest.


My motto is...

be loyal and have fun.


Tell us something we don’t know about you….

I have held my breath for 5 minutes.
