I have an interest helping others from various stages of life improve their function, pain experience, overall lifestyle and wellbeing. With a Bachelor’s degree in Sports and Exercise Science I also have well-rounded knowledge in exercise prescription and rehabilitation, which is further reinforced by my longstanding familiarity and passion of resistance strength training within the gym setting.
My interests within Physiotherapy are musculoskeletal injuries with a well-rounded focus from everyday aches and pains to high-level athlete injuries. My other major interests lie with stroke, neurological rehabilitation and women’s health Physiotherapy. I like to think of myself as having a fun and very easy-going personality who is willing to go the extra mile to make my clients feel extra cared for and most comfortable.
Outside of Physiotherapy I spend most of my time with friends and family, going on food adventures then making up for it and training at the gym, travelling when I am able to, and making the most of my time exploring NSW’s best hiking spots.
I love meeting and getting to know new people and I would love to meet you, to help you reach your goals and be the best version of you!
I have always had a passion for helping others no matter what. When I was younger I was always taking my brother to see a physiotherapist, and every time I was always so fascinated by how they know so much about the human body, how they can figure out exactly what the problem is and know how to fix it.
I liked learning about health and the human body, and I also liked helping people, so for me there was no other profession that would suit me best than to be a physiotherapist.
All areas of physiotherapy are so interesting to me, there really isn’t one I can say is my favourites, I enjoy working with people and help them get better as well as empower them to have an active involvement to better their health, well-being and quality of life.
I have so many things I do outside of being a physiotherapist, the biggest one probably being sport. I have been playing basketball for 15 years and counting, and I love to play other sports like tennis and soccer in my spare time. I enjoy traveling and exploring new places, design (graphic design), cooking, reading, playing games, watching sport and building/crafting things
My name is Vanessa. I graduated with the Bachelors of Sport and Exercise Science at UTS and the Masters of Physiotherapy at the University of Sydney. I became a Physiotherapist because I am passionate about helping others return to the best version of themselves that they can be, whether it’s back to everyday life or back to the sporting field. Growing up, I’ve partaken in a variety of sports such as netball, softball, tag-league and also participated in the regional athletics and cross-country teams.
Within the industry, I would like to be the jack-of-all-trades and understand the many different areas of the body. However, I enjoy treating a variety of musculoskeletal and sports physiotherapy injuries, particularly in relation to the lower back and lower body pathologies. I like to employ both hands-on and exercise-based therapy into my practice.
When I’m not working, I like to travel around. I love travelling overseas and experiencing the different cultures and foods that each country has to offer. I’m a big foodie and I’m always willing to try new things. In my downtime, I really enjoy spending time with my family and friends, listening to music, going on hikes and having a good laugh.
