I returned to Australia in 1992 to complete my post graduate diploma in manipulative physiotherapy at Curtin University and in 1995, I completed a post graduate diploma in clinical acupuncture at the Australian Institute of Holistic Medicine, Perth.

I am a gold member of the A.P.A., titled member of the M.P.A. and was the inaugural W.A. chair of the Acupuncture & Dry Needling Group. I was the WA representative on the A.P.A. Acupuncture Working Party which finalised the A.S.G.' Guidelines for Safe Acupuncture'.

I completed my Specialisation in musculoskeletal physiotherapy in 2009 and am now a Fellow of the Australian College of Physiotherapists. I happen to be the only rural and remote physiotherapist in W.A. who has achieved specialisation in any field. I am currently completing my M. Philosophy (Physiotherapy) at Curtin University, studying sleep patterns and their relationship to pain and stiffness.

I presented a session at the Australian Physiotherapy Association 2011 Conference titled "Care and considerations when needing in the lumbar spine". I have been asked to present again and conduct a pre conference workshop at the October 2013 APA conference.

I have recently created an iApp (VideoXs) to help teach clients their home exercise program and am writing a forthcoming book "Secrets of successful sleeping:maximising your horizontal time".

I enjoy a mix of raising cattle, assisting physiotherapy clients, teaching professional courses and staying on track with my research.
