I have always been based in Perth and value the active lifestyle that WA people embrace. My passion for health and wellness lead me into the profession of Chiropractic, which allows me play a role in supporting our practice members and the community to reach their health and lifestyle goals.
I started seeing a chiropractor many years ago for headaches and neck pain. After seeing major improvements in not only my symptoms, but also my general well-being, energy levels and posture, I realised chiropractic care is about much more than just back pain and headaches. I entered into the profession to help others see the amazing health benefits chiropractic has to offer.
Graduating from Western Australia's Murdoch University in Perth, one of the highlights of my time in student practice was travelling to India to provide chiropractic care to a small community in Siliguri, India. I have strong interest in women's, paediatric and family health and have completed further professional development in these fields. In June 2016 I will complete my post graduate Diploma in Animal Biomechanical Medicine, making me one a small number of qualified animal chiropractors in Australia. I am passionate about improving the quality of life of our furry family members too!
I currently live with my husband Evan and our border collie x kelpie, Indi. I love living close to the coast and on my days off you might see my down the beach on my paddleboard! I'm also a passionate Dockers member and like to get to home games on the weekends. Chiropractic care keeps my body and mind in optimum condition, to maintain my busy lifestyle.

I had always dreamt I would be the first person to discover the cure for cancer and I began my tertiary studies completing a Biomedical Science Degree at UWA. During the last semester of my final year, whilst struggling through 12-hour lab sessions, I felt that surely there would be better ways to achieve optimal health, and from here discovered my real passion; to promote healthy lifestyles through education and preventative approaches.
During my 5 years at Murdoch University pursuing my Bachelor of Science in Chiropractic and Bachelor of Chiropractic, I discovered that Chiropractic was a unique holistic therapy that approached healthcare in a non-invasive, drug-free and non-surgical way. Chiropractors work with the body that functions, heals and self-regulates. Today, I love nothing more than to help clients discover the wonders of Chiropractic care.
Being able to help someone get out of pain or accomplish things they never thought they would be able to do has been the greatest part of this journey and the benefits of Chiropractic care continue to amaze me every day. I am grateful that my profession has allowed me the opportunity to practice and assist people from all walks of life in their journey to health and wellness.
In 2007, I travelled to Siliguri, India with a group of chiropractors to provide care to the local communities. Our aim was to set up field clinics to provide basic medical supplies, first aid and Chiropractic care to the families in the surrounding villages. This incredible experience enabled me to witness first-hand the positive effect Chiropractic care can have, not only to an individual but to a community as a whole. Upon my return, I felt that as a Chiropractor, it was not only my duty but my goal to educate my own community about the importance of spinal health.
I have grown up and lived in Perth all my life and currently reside in Ardross with my husband William, sons Oliver and Levi and puppy – Ronny. I love Perth and truly value the active and healthy lifestyle that it has to offer. I am a passionate Dockers supporter and have always liked to keep fit. I've been playing netball for as long as I can remember, and also participate in boxing classes and group personal training. Regular spinal adjustments ensure that I perform at my best and helps keep my spine and health in optimum condition.

My family has always been a health-conscious clan. My mum introduced Chiropractic to the family before I was born – meaning I have had wellness Chiropractic care for my entire life. Chiropractic has always been an integral part of my life and will continue to be, as I keep discovering the amazing benefits and surprises it has to offer at all levels of health, performance and well-being.
Knowing I wanted to work with the human body, I chose to study Chiropractic at Murdoch University. By the end of the five-year degree, I knew Chiropractic was going to be an invaluable tool to communities and people globally and a new inspiration to those whom have yet to experience Chiropractic’s many benefits and outcomes.
Previously I have practised at Floreat Chiropractic. Within this practice I had a strong focus on mums and bubs, pregnancy, young families, as well as athletes. I have also practiced in Cottesloe with a similar focus, aiming to facilitate the local community to achieve a better quality of life and level of health.
It has been incredible to see how Chiropractic care can so effectively and efficiently change the body’s resilience and health. One of the most rewarding experiences is seeing babies and children transform into healthy, happy (and sleeping!) little people.
In my role at Baldivis Chiropractic, I endeavor to continue providing excellent, best practice Chiropractic care and health advice to our community. I keep myself current with the best available research and professional development/continuing education opportunities, to ensure that you receive the best possible care. I am excited to be a part of the practice and the local community!
I believe the path to optimal health, performance and wellbeing is through a simple formula: an uninterrupted nervous system, healthy eating habits, regular movement, a well-balanced mind and adequate rest.

I have always known that I wanted to be in a profession that helps people. Throughout my childhood and teenage years, I suffered from chronic debilitating knee pain. I was told my only option was to have reconstructive knee surgery. I had tried all the conventional forms of care, and with nothing else to try, my mum took me to see a chiropractor. The doctor examined me, adjusted both my spine and knees. After just one adjustment from the chiropractor, my knee pain subsided.
The relief I received through chiropractic, not only with my knee but also with chronic headaches and stomach problems, led me to study Chiropractic at Murdoch University. I was intrigued by the hidden effects that chiropractic offers and was excited to start studying.
My passion for the body also inspired me study to become a qualified sports trainer. This allowed me to work with athletes, assisting them with their injuries, rehabilitation and strapping. I have worked as a sports trainer for 5 years and now completing my ICCSP (Internationally Certified Chiropractic Sports Practitioner).
I absolutely love being a chiropractor and being on the opposite side of the adjustment. I love providing the community with the information and care they need to heal. I believe that Chiropractic is essential for a healthy life, and one of the most rewarding parts of my job is being able to assist my clients in expressing their optimal health.
I have been a Chiropractic Assistant since 2013, after previously working in a job where I was unknowingly not looking after my health and well being. I had very little knowledge of what chiropractic was, but since starting care I have experienced first hand the many benefits that chiropractic care has to offer. Not only has it helped with my chronic neck, hip and back pain but I have also experienced better sleep, a stronger immune system and more energy throughout the day. Seeing the amazing potential that our bodies possess has inspired me to further my education in holistic healing so I am now studying to become a Naturopath. Being a part of the Baldivis Chiropractic team has begun my journey towards a healthier more fulfilling lifestyle.
Since being welcomed into the Baldivis Chiropractic team, I feel so honoured to be working with such passionate individuals. I truly believe in order to be successful at anything you need to surround yourself with people who excel at what they do. Immediately upon spending time in the practice I realised how incredibly health conscious, positive, supportive & passionate the team are which makes for an incredible environment to work in. As well as that the high standard for customer care at the clinic I feel is unmatched by anywhere else I’ve ever been. In my time working in the clinic I have been amazed at the extensive amount of health areas that chiropractic can support and am really looking forward to this journey of better health.
My favourite thing about being a Chiropractic Assistant is the family environment we get to experience within the clinic. I love creating close relationships with our practice members and watching them grow through their wellness journey.
I have been a patient of chiropractic for the past 15 years and have experienced the many health benefits that regular maintenance provides; which is why I am so grateful that I get to meet and welcome new people to Baldivis Chiropractic - whether they have had chiropractic care previously or whether it’s their first experience with chiropractic. I am very grateful to be a part of such an awesome team who are all so passionate about what they do!
