What do you love most about paediatric physio? The children! I love interacting with the kids and having the opportunity to learn from them and their parents. I truly believe that parents are the experts on their kids and that my role is to support parents in helping their children achieve their own personal physical potential. My job is rewarding, diverse, creative and fun - I feel privileged to be doing it and enjoy discovering the uniqueness of each child.
