The reason I became a chiropractor was quite simple. I was a competitive swimmer as a teenager, and after overdoing it quite considerably, had a left arm with no strength, no feeling, pins and needles and a blue hand. Even though the coach said to go to a physio, one of the Grandpas at the pool said to go to the chiropractor. Within no time at all the pins and needles had gone, the feeling had returned and after some rehab was back in the pool. So that was it; my decision had been made. I was going to be a chiropractor.
I went to Macquarie University in Sydney, and even before I finished was instructing and teaching technique, and a few years later moved to the intern clinics to be an associate clinical supervisor. I am on the governing board of the Sydney College of Chiropractic, the Executive of the Sydney College Scholarship fund and am the Secretary of The Chiropractic Alumni. I love to stay involved in my profession and the people by volunteering with all of these organisations.
My other interests include staying fit and healthy by going for walks, swims and getting outside. I also competed in Physical Culture while in Sydney (a type of dance) and was runner up Champion Lady three years in a row.
I moved to Mackay from Sydney for a sea change and an adventure, and to work with the fantastic people at Grays Chiropractic Centre. I look forward to meeting everyone and helping them reach their full potential through Chiropractic.
