About Me[edit | edit source]

I qualified as a Physiotherapist from the University of Pretoria in South Africa after which I worked for the South African National Defence Force mostly seeing Orthopaedic and Neurology (adult and paediatric) patients. I have since been working in private practice and opened my own practice in 2012. I have a keen interest in Manual Therapy and Neurology and I also love education and research.

I was involved on the National Orthopaedic Manipulative Therapy (OMT) committee for many years and course leader in South Gauteng which fueled my desire to be involved in improving the skills of physiotherapists. I am energised by collaborating with other physiotherapists and passionate to be involved in growing our profession.
