My passion for sports and exercise dates back to when I was a teen and remain unchanged now. This has fuelled my love for physiotherapy, and the ability to help restore people's movement and health makes physiotherapy a great career choice for me. 

Since graduating from the University of Queensland in 2014, I’ve been working in a private practice setting for close to 9 years. I’ve helped professional futsal players return to play at National level. I've also treated a variety of clients ranging from athletes, people with disability, those who suffered from
trauma and workplace injuries, and chronic pain. 

I have accumulated a great amount of knowledge and insight into complex injuries, anatomy and biomechanics. My creativity in exercise and rehab has benefited from past experience in sports, body-building and powerlifting. Despite this, I'm keeping my skills and knowledge up to date with regular training, self-learning and discussions with my colleagues.

Regardless of the type or severity of injuries, it is always important for me as the therapist to build rapport and trust with my clients and guide people to better look after their own body and health. My priority is to guide my clients to do their exercises and help them understand why movement is so important in achieving their goals. 


My love for physiotherapy also comes from the fact that we can be experts in not one but many facets of the health industry.

My areas of interest in physiotherapy include:


  • hamstring and ankle related futsal and baksetball injuries

  • injuries caused by weight training

  • ACL pre-hab and rehab

  • sports injuries 

  • neck and shoulder injuries

  • low back injuries


As I’m a sucker for biomechanics and functional movement therapy, I’m starting to look into calisthenics as my next passion. On the other hand, I’m also trained in dry needling and the GLA:D program for hip and knee arthritis. 


The longer I work as a physiotherapist, the less I feel like I’m just a clinician and more of a life coach who’s here to support my clients lead a healthier and happier lifestyle.
