I had always dreamt I would be the first person to discover the cure for cancer and I began my tertiary studies completing a Biomedical Science Degree at UWA. During the last semester of my final year, whilst struggling through 12-hour lab sessions, I felt that surely there would be better ways to promote good health and from here discovered my real passion; to promote healthy lifestyles through education and preventative approaches.

During my 5 years at Murdoch University pursuing my Bachelor of Science in Chiropractic and Bachelor of Chiropractic, I discovered that chiropractic was a unique therapy that approached healthcare in a non-invasive, drug-free and non-surgical way. Chiropractors work with the musculoskeletal system to assist in the way it functions. Today, I love nothing more than to help clients discover chiropractic care.

Being able to help someone with their musculoskeletal health and see them accomplish things they never thought they would be able to do has been the greatest part of this journey. I am grateful that my profession has allowed me the opportunity to work with people of all ages and walks of life.  This variety in practice members allows us to make the most of our varied specific chiropractic techniques we use in our clinic.

In 2007, I travelled to Siliguri, India with a group of chiropractors to provide care to the local communities. Our aim was to set up field clinics to provide basic medical supplies and chiropractic care to the families in the surrounding villages. Upon my return, I felt that as a chiropractor, it was not only my duty but my goal to educate my own community about the importance of spinal health.

I have grown up and lived in Perth all my life and currently reside in Ardross with my husband William, sons Oliver and Levi and puppy – Ronny. I love Perth and truly value the active and healthy lifestyle that it has to offer. I am a passionate Dockers supporter and have always liked to keep fit. I’ve been playing netball for as long as I can remember, and participate in boxing classes and group personal training.
