Laurel is a recent graduate who has developed a passion for listening to patient’s stories and providing individualised treatment programs for all her patients. She has an interest in working with the paediatric population due to her extensive childcare background.
Laurel has loved the idea of being a physiotherapist since she was 13 years old. She began her journey by graduating with a Bachelor of Applied Exercise Science at Azusa Pacific University in the United States. From there, she had the opportunity to work at a private musculoskeletal physiotherapy clinic as a Physiotherapy aide. She enjoyed helping her patients work through their corrective exercise programs, encouraging good form and appropriate technique. She was able to see a diverse range of patients including children which first sparked her interest in working with a paediatric population. This interest was also rooted in her many years of experience in childcare working as a lifeguard for 9 years, a substitute teacher for a few years, and as a leader in youth groups throughout her life.
She then decided to attend Bond University in Queensland Australia to obtain her Doctor of Physiotherapy degree. During her clinical placements, she was given the opportunity to work with a renowned children’s Physiotherapist at Kindly Moves Physiotherapy in Murwillumbah. This grew her passion for paediatric patients and led her to pursue a career in this field. During this placement, she was also introduced to Sharon Hennessey and the incredible world of Hypermobility through an online lecture. She then sought employment in this field to help give her patients the tools and knowledge required to increase their quality of life.
She is continuing to gain experience and pursue her professional development in the area of Hypermobility by attending ongoing personal mentoring sessions with Sharon Hennessey, Pilates training courses and plans to be a lifelong learner due to Hypermobility’s ever evolving nature.
Laurel is available throughout the week before and after school hours including most Saturdays. She is also able to offer home visits and telehealth consultations if desired.
Outside of work Laurel loves to immerse herself in books, painting on canvas, and going on off-road adventures exploring this beautiful country.
