B.Sci (Clinical Sci) & M.H.Sci (Osteo)


I have a passion for rehabilitating sports injuries. I'm interested in assessment, treatment and management of injuries to ensure players are able to maximize their game time.

I am originally from Tassie and completed my Masters in Osteopathy at Victoria University in Melbourne. After working and gaining experience in Sydney, I moved to Christchurch in 2016.
Depending on the patient’s case and needs, I use a combination of direct manual techniques alongside a more indirect and gentle approach. I work on restoring muscle elasticity and joint mobility to improve whole body function and enjoy working with everyone from school-age children to the elderly, with all activity levels. 

I have a history of semi-elite rowing while at school and have worked with many elite athletes in injury recovery. From this, I have learnt the importance of combining manual treatment with lifestyle and exercise advice for optimal recovery and for reducing the risk of reoccurring pain and injury.

I'm available for bookings on Tuesday and Thursday at Wairakai Osteopathy but also at Merivale Osteopathy on Wednesdays and Fridays.
