She uses a mixture of hands- on techniques such as stretching and joint mobilisation, and also works with you to incorporate exercise and movement into your management plan for better health outcomes.

She also works at RMIT University as a lecturer in the osteopathy department, and is a committee member of the Australasian Osteopathic Accreditation Council.
