Kelly graduated with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy from The University of Notre Dame, Western Australia in 2007. After a short stint in the public health sector, Kelly began working in a highly reputable Sports and Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy Clinic. Kelly’s caseload included a variety of sports, musculoskeletal, gender health and continence and post-surgical patients. As part of her role as a senior physiotherapist, Kelly managed the inpatient list on a busy maternity ward which is where her passion for obstetrics and women’s health began.
After spending the first part of her career juggling work, athletics and travel, Kelly decided to pursue her passion for Women’s Health and completed a Graduate Certificate in Continence and Women's Health through Curtin University. Upon completion of her course, Kelly worked for a specialist Women’s and Men’s Health and Continence Clinic where she gained further experience in the assessment and management of ante-natal and post-natal conditions, incontinence, post prostatectomy complications and pelvic pain disorders.
Kelly believes in taking a holistic approach to patient care. This enables her to determine both the physical and non-physical factors contributing to the condition and to tailor an individualised management plan.
