Senior Physiotherapist

Year Commenced at Vector Health


Work Experience in the industry

I qualified in 1989 then went on to do my post graduate study between 1996-2001. Complete a Post Graduate Diploma – Manipulative Physiotherapy and a Masters in Health Science. A few years later I went back to study completing a Post Graduate Certificate in Sports and Exercise Science. I have mainly worked in private practice as well as public hospital work. Prior to starting at Vector Health, I spent five years working for myself in a gym based clinic in New Zealand.

What are your professional interests?

I enjoy working with anyone but have a strong interest in sports physiotherapy. This had lead me to doing 3 tours overseas, and working with 8 sports at an international level including football (soccer), Rowing, Beach and Indoor Volleyball, Waka Ama (canoeing), Roller Derby and Youth Olympics. I also have a passion for working with youth as you can make such a difference with this group when they are dedicated and working hard.

What are two interests away from work?

Other than spending much of my spare time doing sports work and on professionally committees, I train at the gym and read.

What do you like about working at Vector Health?

Vector Health has similar values to my own. The passion of Glenn and the crew have excited me and has helped refuel my passion in Physiotherapy.
