I feel lucky to wake up every day and get to work with people to explore what health and wellbeing means to them. This is achieved via dividing my time between working in private practice, consulting with patients and mentoring our team. In addition, I am involved in tutoring on a number of post-graduate osteopathic programs, sharing this experience with osteopathic students and qualified Osteopaths alike.
My undergraduate training and Masteres project was completed at RMIT University in 2007. With an ongoing commitment to further osteopathic education, I was involved in further study completing a Graduate Certificate in Neonatal and Paediatric Manual Therapy at Victoria University in 2012. Mentoring osteopathic students to prepare for clinical practice is an important part of professional and clinic life, it motivates and challenges me to continually reflect on my skills and better myself and inspire those around me.
Since 2012, I have been fortunate to be the Australian Course Co-ordinator for the Australian Research College of Osteopathic Medicine (ARCOM), who run training for registered Osteopaths. Additionally I’m a faculty and board member of the Sutherland Cranial Teaching Foundation of Australia and New Zealand. As a professional member of Osteopathy Australia and the Australian Breastfeeding Association, I undertake regular ongoing education and maintain national registration with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency.
