As an athlete and advanced Royal Academy ballerina, I have always been fascinated by human anatomy and movement. This planted the seed early in my life to become a medical professional.
At school, I excelled in academics and actively participated in sports and dancing. As a ballerina, I danced in several State Theater productions and was the lead Ballerina in a production of Sleeping Beauty. Unsurprisingly, these activities required many a visit to physiotherapists and other medical practitioners, further fostering my future career choices.
In 2020 I completed my BSc Physiotherapy Honours degree at the University of the Free State. During my academic and clinical studies, I became interested in treating cardiopulmonary, neurological, and orthopaedic conditions.
I am married to a professional cricketer and have come to understand the impact professional sport can have on the mind and body. This and my empathetic relationship with my patients have taught me the importance of the balance between emotions and treatment, to help my patients to lead the life they want.
