Profile image 1.jpg

I graduated from Stellenbosch University (South Africa) in 2008 with my undergraduate degree in Physiotherapy. After completing my community service year at a district hospital in the Cape Flats, I started working in the private sector. During 2010, I completed my postgraduate certificate in Orthopaedic Manipulative Therapy (OMT) and have since focused on treating patients with sport and orthopaedic physiotherapy.

I am currently a senior physiotherapist and associate manager at Lamberti Physiotherapy in Cape Town.

I grew up in a family of teachers and have developed a love to teach and guide young physios. I have a passion to learn and enjoy researching.

About Me[edit | edit source]

I am a born and bread Capetonian and I am the eldest of 4 children. After job-shadowing in my Grade 10 year, I decided to study physio. I was fortunate enough to complete my degree in physiotherapy at Stellenbosch University, after which I completed my Community Service at GF Jooste district hospital. I soon realized that I wanted to focus on orthopaedics and sport and decided to do my certificate in Orthopaedic Manipulative Therapy in 2009 to improve my clinical reasoning and skills. I have developed a passion for physiotherapy and I enjoy both the clinical aspect of physiotherapy as well as research and continuous professional development.
