I am a Senior Physiotherapist currently undertaking a PhD at the University of Adelaide.
My research focus is on the possible impact that spending time in nature could have on chronic lower respiratory disease outcomes.
I have previously worked as a Senior Physiotherapist and Clinical Educator within Rehabilitation Hospitals in Adelaide and have been the owner/director of Adelaide Mobile Physiotherapy. During my time working in Rehabilitation I worked in both in-patient and out-patient departments. I have experience in all areas of physiotherapy including cardio-respiratory, musculoskeletal, neurological, orthopaedics, oncology and geronotology, and have designed and implemented a variety of out-patient programs. Working in a rehabilitation hospital gave me the opportunity to develop my skills as a rehabilitation physiotherapist and the tools I needed to develop and implement out-patient rehabilitation programs and workshops. During that time, I developed a passion for cardio-respiratory physiotherapy and so have focused my research towards that area.
