DIRECTOR & PHYSIOTHERAPIST


Why did you become a physio?

After injuring myself as a professional dancer I turned to teaching Pilates to earn my keep, but always wanted to be a physiotherapist. I was always impressed with what physiotherapists like Sue Mayes (Australian Ballet) were able to achieve when I was injured. Hobbling in for treatment and then being able to dance on stage an hour later was always a marvel to me. I wanted to be able to help people in that way and is what gives me the greatest satisfaction; helping people feel better.  

What are your key special skills and interests as a physio? 

My interests lie with dance physiotherapy, I also enjoy coaching and teaching ballet. Correcting overuse injuries in dancers often relates to poor technique, having a physio and dance background enables me to do this.

What is your favourite thing about your role at STC?

Having the opportunity to work with dancers as well as taking rehabilitation or strength classes is my favourite thing to do. Seeing clients getting stronger and achieving in their athletic pursuits or simply feeling better and recovering from their injury is the best!

What has been the highlight of your career to date? 

Working with dancers from Zurich (in Zurich) Ballet and helping them with their injuries was a great experience. I’ve also had the opportunity of working with dancers from different Australian or international ballet companies that are visiting Canberra. 

If you could spend the day as either #SportsTecGus or #SportsTecNibbles, which would you choose and why?

Gus I think...but let's face it, both are so ridiculously cute, and everyone loves them so I think it would be pretty good to be either of them! 

Who is the most annoying colleague to share the kitchen with?

*Long pause*...probably me.
