At about the age of 8, I remember waking up with a "kinked" neck and couldn't move. Reluctantly my father took me to see a chiropractor and I couldn't believe how quickly the pain subsided and the movement returned. A few years later I started getting migraines and neck pain. I soon worked out that the two were related, and found that a regular visit to my chiropractor helped to relieve both. While studying for the HSC, my chiropractor suggested I look into chiropractic as a profession, and I've never looked back.
I graduated in 1993, after completing 5 years at University; a Bachelor of Science at University of NSW and a Masters in Chiropractic at Macquarie University. I started practice as an associate at Concord West, working with one of my lecturers, before coming back home to Newcastle in 1995, where I had grown up.
Since graduating almost 28 years ago, I have had the opportunity to study many other modalities including chiropractic paediatrics and dry-needling which I incorporate into practice today.
When I'm not in the practice you will usually find me busily running around after my two beautiful daughters - Bella born in 2006, and Lily in 2008.
