Emily graduated from Victoria University with a Bachelor of Clinical Science (Osteopathy) and a Masters of Health Science (Osteopathy), after originally studying Exercise Science and Nutrition majors at Deakin University.
Emily grew up in country South West Victoria, where there wasn’t much else to do but play sport. Emily enjoyed playing all sport as a child and teenager, with her specialty being netball. With both her parents being nurses and spending much of her childhood in and around the local hospital, Emily knew her career would end up in the health profession.
Emily is also a swimming coach and has enjoyed being able to help kids of all ages learn to swim and develop them into state level swimmers for the past 10 years. She can also easily develop swimming based rehabilitation programs for her patients.
Emily is an extremely passionate and enthusiastic Osteopath and enjoys treating patients of all ages. She loves the holistic approach it has, incorporating education, dry needling and rehabilitation into her treatments and management of patients. As a headache sufferer herself for many years, Emily particularly enjoys treating this condition, as she is able to draw on her experiences (having trialled what has and has not been successful) and use this to her advantage in achieving positive patient outcomes.
Emily is eager to continue her Professional Development and has completed extra courses in both Dry Needling and Balanced Ligamentous Tension (gentle, indirect osteopathic series of techniques that can be really useful for acute conditions and/or those patients that prefer a gentle approach). More recently, she has also completed the first level of mat Pilates.
Family is a big part of Emily’s life, coming from a large and very close extended family. She enjoys catching up with her family whenever she can, as well as spending time with her friends, travelling, shopping and baking for others – so she doesn’t eat all the sweets herself!
