When I was younger, chiropractic was about recovering from injuries from the balance beam, the soccer pitch or the running track. And it still is. But as I have grown I have realised how important posture is to health and longevity, how much chronic stress can wear the body down both physically and emotionally, how much pregnancy can alter the way the pelvis functions, how children and babies need gentle, specific care so as not to overwhelm their developing nervous systems and how important diet and exercise are to overall health both short and long term.
My chiropractic life includes graduating from Macquarie University (Sydney) in 2004 and working in Glasgow, Newcastle, Manchester and now Canberra (where I was born). I have a diploma in Naturopathic Nutrition and in 2017 successfully completed a 400 hour CPD course in Chiropractic Neurodevelopmental Paediatrics. I have had the amazing experience of travelling to both Vietnam and India on outreach programs to deliver chiropractic care to poverty stricken areas, where many have no medical access.
After having three children and experiencing chronic pelvic instability, I have developed a strong passion for helping women through their pregnancies and getting stable and strong again afterwards. I am also passionate about working with babies and children as they navigate through the huge journey of growing, developing and learning to interact with the world around them. This is such a critical time and making even the smallest positive change in a child’s journey is what gives me the most amount of joy as a chiropractor. Having experienced adrenal fatigue and chronic low back pain, these are also areas I am very passionate and dedicated to assisting others with.
In my experience, while chiropractic adjustments alone can provide a powerful change to the neuromusculoskeletal system, to enhance these changes it is always best to consider all drivers of health.
