I am a dedicated Senior Physiotherapist and academic at The University of Adelaide, currently immersed in the pursuit of knowledge through a PhD. My research revolves around exploring the potential impact of nature exposure on outcomes related to chronic lower respiratory diseases.

With a rich professional background, I've served as a Senior Physiotherapist and Clinical Educator within Rehabilitation Hospitals in Adelaide. My extensive experience spans both in-patient and out-patient departments, covering diverse areas of physiotherapy such as cardio-respiratory, musculoskeletal, neurological, orthopedics, oncology, and gerontology. The dynamic challenges of rehabilitation hospitals have not only honed my skills as a rehabilitation physiotherapist but have also equipped me with the expertise needed to design and implement a range of out-patient programs.

As the owner and director of Adelaide Mobile Physiotherapy, I have actively contributed to the community by providing quality care and innovative solutions. This experience has further fueled my passion for cardio-respiratory physiotherapy, inspiring my current research focus. Throughout my journey, I've developed a profound commitment to advancing healthcare and contributing valuable insights to the field. My multifaceted experience and ongoing academic pursuits reflect my dedication to improving patient outcomes and pushing the boundaries of physiotherapy research.
