My Bio

Meet Jackie

I graduated with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy at The University of South Australia in 2004. After graduating I worked in the hospital setting for 2 years where I gained valuable experience in Rehabilitation and Women’s Health. Since 2006 I have worked in Private Practice predominantly in the area of Women’s Health.

I work closely with a number of General Practitioners, Obstetricians and Gynaecologists treating Women during Antenatal and Postnatal periods, and also assists in the treatment of women with Incontinence, Pelvic Organ Prolapse, Pre and Post Gynaecological Surgery, Pelvic Pain and a range of other Women’s Health issues. I have Certificates in advanced Dry Needling and trained in Pilates in 2005. I have continued Pilates education working closely with Polestar Pilates Practitioners developing a comprehensive knowledge of Pilates Principles and applications for rehabilitation. 

My Motto to Live By

I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
