About

Courtney originates from Adelaide where she was always involved in various sports from backyard tournaments with family through to club sport. A love of science and human performance led her to a career in physiotherapy, which has since taken her to various places both domestically and internationally.

Outside of work, Courtney enjoys being outdoors and general fitness, swimming and sharing a nice glass of wine and good food with friends and family. 

Career

Courtney's career has spanned over a decade including work across various private practices in Adelaide, Darwin and Cairns, as well as with Defence personnel on base health. She has experience working with athletes across various disciplines including the PNG Olympic Committee for the 2015 Pacific Games in Port Moresby. 

Courtney has a love of learning and always keen to build upon her knowledge base. After completing a Bachelor of Physiotherapy at The University of South Australia and spending a few years working, a desire to further her assessment and diagnostic skills led her to complete a Master of Musculoskeletal and Sports Physiotherapy at Griffith University, Gold Coast. The continued curiosity of human biology and performance has now led her to Geelong, commencing study of medicine at Deakin University. 

Despite making the decision to study medicine, Courtney is still enthusiastic about the physiotherapy profession and helping people achieve their performance goals. Courtney’s areas of interest include Clinical Pilates, athletic hip and groin pain, chronic pain in athletes and post-operative rehabilitation. She has a background in strength and conditioning, and is keen to assist people in reaching their performance goals.
