Originally from Brisbane, I was raised in a big family on a beautiful 5-acre property with lots of animals and lots of space to explore our natural surrounds. Throughout my childhood our family believed that with quality natural ingredients and the right environment our bodies will take care of themselves.
When I was thirteen, my family began our Chiropractic journey based on the experience and advice of a close family friend. We had discovered an approach that perfectly matched our natural philosophy. After this realisation my entire family began regular chiropractic care and we all experienced the benefits. Once under chiropractic care we rarely visited the GP and if we experienced a health challenge we chose to empower our body and immune system by being adjusted. Chiropractic care remains an important part of my own healthy lifestyle. I continue to be adjusted on a regular basis and after only 15 years of care, I couldn’t imagine my life and that of my own family without Chiropractic.
After completing high school I studied science at the University of Queensland before moving to Auckland to follow my dream of becoming a chiropractor. Five years of study later and lots of Auckland rain I graduated from the New Zealand College of Chiropractic.
The more I learn about Chiropractic and the intelligence of the body to heal, repair & grow when interferences are removed from the nerve system, the more I am blown away by what it can offer and the difference it can make to each individual. I am excited to have the opportunity to share all I have learnt with you. My goal is to provide you and your family with the very best chiropractic care and an opportunity to continually evolve in health and life.
I share my story with you so that you may appreciate that Chiropractic is much more than simply a career for me. I invite you to share your experiences with me and to share these experiences with others. Life is not merely about surviving – it’s about being the best ‘YOU’ you can be!
Born and raised on the beautiful Sunshine Coast, I have always loved the outdoors and being close to the beach. This love for the outdoors inherently fed my appetite for adventure and subsequently a neck injury in my teenage years. It was at this point that I was exposed to the excellence of chiropractic and just how fascinating the human body really is. I went on to complete a certificate 4 in therapeutic and remedial massage, however, I was still curious as to what chiropractic was really about.
I knew I had a passion and drive to help people, but it was the influence of chiropractic that solidified this passion into not only an obsession but a career. So I packed my bags and moved to Melbourne with my partner Hollie, to begin a five-year double bachelor degree at RMIT University.
At Uni I developed a love for human anatomy, in particular, the spine and nervous system and how it can affect the way we move, think, function and ultimately live our lives!
This knowledge of the integral role of the spine and nervous system on our health and function is the driving force behind my goal to help empower people to take control of their health through the means of structural correction. For this reason, I strive to give you, your friends and family members the very best of chiropractic care to enhance your bodies own ability to heal, adapt and grow, no matter what life throws at you!
I look forward to helping you, help yourself!
I was born in Calgary, Canada where I grew up and went to school. I used to play street hockey with friends, go hiking with my family and played lots of sport like basketball, volleyball and squash. Two weeks after graduating highschool, I moved to Lake Louise, living in a cabbin and working the 2nd best job in the world - ski lift operator! While I was in the mountains, my family moved to Australia and when the season ended I went over to visit the fam and backpacked up and down the east coast for a couple months, only to never move back!
I ended up moving to the Sunshine Coast and went to USC for a few years, studying Sport and Exercise Science before realising, I liked the subject matter more than the careers that program was going to get me, so I moved to Townsville to study Marine Biology! It only took a semester to realise that wasn't the right path either and I ended up working in a quarry as a soil-technician for 5 years. While on holiday back on the Sunshine Coast, I had a sore neck and figured that's the kind of thing you see a chiropractor for - little did I know the next few visits would change my life forever. I was so inspired by the Chiro that helped me out, I asked where to go to study it and within months was moving to Auckland with my partner and our 2 dogs. Five years later and I'm back on the coast having graduated from the New Zealand College of Chiropractic and ready to help, heal and inspire the people of the Sunshine Coast.
I feel so lucky to have almost fallen backwards into this amazing profession. Learning about chiropractic and how it's so much more than sore backs, necks or headaches, has turned what started as an interest in human anatomy and function, into a passion for helping people lead healthier and happier lives naturally through restored neuro-physiological connection and function.
