Kirsty grew up around competitive sport, so decided to study a Bachelor of Human Movement as it embodied two of her main interests: health and physical movement. Once studying, she had the opportunity to work as an assistant to exercise physiologists where she became interested in exercise pathology and the ways in which exercise can reduce or reverse disease progression for chronic health conditions. Seeing the difference that clinical exercise could make in someone’s life inspired her to continue her education and she become an Accredited Exercise Physiologist.
Kirsty approaches clinical practice in a way that’s personal, collaborative and evidence-based. She always works to understand an individual’s goals and motivators, and works with them using evidence-based exercise interventions to achieve the best possible outcomes.
Kirsty has varied experience working in aged care, neurological rehabilitation and elite sport training. She has a special interest in spinal cord injury with more than 15 years experience in inpatient rehabilitation delivering strength and conditioning programs, lifestyle education and wheelchair skills training.
