Jess graduated from the University of Newcastle and has worked in our public hospital system ever since. This experience has provided her with a wide range of experience and skills. Jess’s passion lies with paediatrics, enjoying the bonds made with client and family by providing a family-centered approach to care.
At HealthPoint Jess treats numerous paediatric conditions, such as: plagiocephaly and/or head turn preference, gross motor development, developmental delay, in-toeing, sports-specific goals for the paediatric client, paediatric gait analysis and flexible metatarsus adductus/positional talipes (not requiring casting).
Jess’s approach to treatment focuses on empowering the individual through education and goal setting. She sets SMART goals collaboratively with clients and predominately uses exercise as therapy to achieve such goals, with a focus on yoga and Pilates techniques for adults, allowing the individual and family to take control of their progress.
Jess is also experienced in geriatric rehabilitation, increasing confidence and reducing falls, post-operative musculoskeletal rehabilitation and general neurological rehabilitation (such as patients post-stroke or with a diagnosis of Parkinson’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, etc.)
When not working or studying, she loves being active in as many ways possible – running, cycling, going to the gym, Pilates and yoga and walking her fur-baby Ziggy. Jess loves a good cup of coffee and is always up for chat; she is a lover of news and current affairs and of course, the beach.
