Physiotherapy is the profession of movement. It is about helping you enjoy life to the maximum by being able to move as well as possible. Over more than 30 years, I have been fortunate enough to work with many people to help them gain, regain or improve their movement. It has involved such a wide variety of circumstances and people:
- stroke patients, head injured patients, amputees, patients with neurological conditions
- patients who have had major trauma and/or major orthopaedic surgery
- sports people from purely social levels to elite level athletes
- helping workers with injury from the workplace return to work and their lifestyle
- people being limited by arthritic pain
- everyday people with sore backs or necks that interferes with their everyday activities

In each and every case, lack of normal, pain-free movement has impacted their life. My role has been to help these people get back their quality of life or to attain their maximal potential.

Whilst I do have a special interest in sports injuries and orthopaedic conditions, and have worked extensively in these areas, every patient's story and circumstance is unique and important.

​Having graduated from Cumberland College of Health Sciences (now part of University of Sydney) in 1987, I started life as a Physiotherapist at Woden Valley Hospital (now Canberra Hospital) in Canberra. I then worked at The Royal Canberra Hospital and an aged care facility before moving into the private practice arena in 1989


​I started my first private practice in 1990 and operated it for 10 years. During that time, there was a heavy empahsis on exercise as a form of therapy and rehabilitation, and this resulted in starting one of the earliest exercise therapy / work conditioning businesses in Canberra. During this time, I gained a lot of experience in the areas of sports injuries and treatng orthopaedic conditions. I also worked with local and State Level sporting teams and sportspeople. The clinic was involved in the community by sponsoring local sportspeople and clubs.


I also undertook regular continuing education courses in the areas of sports medicine, manual therapy and orthopaedic conditions.


From 2001 to 2009, I worked in a variety of roles in Canberra, Newcastle and Wollongong including injury management adviser at a major Workers Compensation Insurer, overseeing work conditioning programs, Return to Work Co-ordinator at Macquarie Generation Power Stations and a Rehabiltation Provider.


I returned to working in private practice in 2009 at a top facility in Wollongong, again working with local sporting teams. Here I was also able to work with one of the top orthopaedic surgeons in NSW and gained great experience in the management of ACL surgery rehabilitation.


I established Movement and Performance Health Services in 2013 in Wollongong, relocating to Plus Fitness Gym at Corrimal in 2014. Here I was able to gain exposure to clients involved in a variety of traning spheres including power lifting, bodybuilding and strongman events.


The clinic moved to it's new home, The Gym Physio Clinic, in East Corrimal in April 2021. I am excited to have opened the new clinic that allows me the opportunity to provide greater assessment services, especially of sports and exercise-related injuries. It also allows for initial rehab to commence on-site and to more accutarely prescribe tailored rehabilitation exercises.


I am thankful to the many patients over the years who have entrusted their health and recovery to my care. ​


If your life is being impacted by injury, painful movement or reduced movement, please call to make an appointment to assess your condition and see if a physiotherapy programme can help you move better, live better. 


Outside the clinic, my interests include Photography and Music, and I am a regular at the gym.​
