After a number of years of working in the city my wife an I decided there must be more to life and were attracted to the coastal lifestyle of Victor Harbor (it seems many new young families are seeing the attraction too). I have a sporting background, cycling professionally at a national and international level,  which has transferred into a passion of sporting injuries and biomechanics. This knowledge of movement patterns and postures has transferred into the treatment of every day injuries to patients of all ages with a particular interest in prevention of reoccurrences.  Moving to the south coast has also brought me back to working in a hospital setting where I  enjoy working in an inpatient role at SCDH treating orthopedic, cardio respiratory, neurological and gerontology patients.  Preventative medicine and promoting active lifestyles is a passion of mine.  There is indisputable evidence for the massive benefit for active healthy lifestyles and getting moving, yet sometimes it is difficult to know where to start, I am passionate to try and help people with this process.

I graduated from the University of South Australia in 2010 with a degree in both Physiotherapy and Human Movement. Since I love learning, I continue to keep up to-date with the latest research through post graduate education at Latrobe University. Clinically, I have interest working with hard to fix problems such as persistent pain, tendonopathies (think ‘bursitis’, ‘tendinosis’, ‘RSI’), and boney stress injuries. Likewise, I love sports rehabilitation and working with kids and those with disabilities. Life before physio, I worked as a personal trainer and strength and conditioning coach so expect some sort of exercise therapy from me. Outside the clinic, I’m a family man with 4 active boys and 1 little girl. I love surfing, basketball and most things that involve being outdoors and movement.

I grew up in the Limestone Coast and spent the majority of my spare time on the sporting court, field or track. My love for sport developed into a passion for promoting a healthy, active lifestyle. I enjoy treating a wide range of acute or chronic musculoskeletal conditions and working with clients to individualise a rehabilitation or prevention program.

I take a holistic approach, combining the focus of active management and education with manual therapies when appropriate, to ensure clients achieve their goals.

In my free time you’ll find me outside – whether it’s playing sport, at the beach, camping, running or exploring. I’m super excited to be a part of the Fleurieu community and am looking forward to discovering all the best food, coffee and sights around.

I was brought up on a Dairy Farm at Back Valley and educated at the Victor Harbor Primary and High Schools.

After completing my education, my initial occupation was at Kimber’s Pharmacy as a dispensary assistant where I worked for three years. I then applied for a Receptionist position at Rosemary Warwick’s Physiotherapy Clinic, which then became Roger Nunn Physiotherapy Clinic and then progressed to Victor Harbor Physiotherapy with the current partners Philip Doley, Peter Mueller and Boyd Fitton. It has been exciting to see the practice grow from one practitioner to now ten consulting practitioners.

My interests include love of the outdoors where I like to bike ride, walk and garden. I also enjoy Pilates that hopefully keeps me more flexible in my old age and also a fun time with the group, which the practice runs. I like to get together with friends at our card-making workshops, cooking (the physios enjoy home made cooking) and of course I enjoy retail therapy and coffee with friends.

I am looking forward to working in a great team environment & getting to know the clientele.
I moved to Victor Harbor in 2019, from Keith in the south east, for my husbands work promotion. It was the best move we could have made. We recently built a home & have felt so welcome in the wonderful community.
Outside of work I am a taxi driver for my two sports mad children! We also  love the outdoors from water skiing on the Murray, or enjoying the beautiful fleurieu waters swimming, fishing, and exploring.
