As an Accredited Exercise Physiologist, I am passionate about promoting safe exercise recommendations to a diverse range of clientele. I prescribe tailored exercise programs to suit each individuals’ abilities, goals, interests and lifestyle.

Being physically active and living a healthy lifestyle has always been an interest of mine, therefore I completed a Bachelor of Human Movement followed by a Postgraduate Diploma in Clinical Exercise Science at UniSA.
