Chiropractors

I was first exposed to chiropractic as a 12 year old experiencing assorted health issues around severe knee pain. After seeing a chiropractor, I became interested in how spinal dysfunction in one part of my body (my lower back) could affect another part of my body (my knee). My chiropractor explained to me that spinal dysfunction in my lower back was affecting knee function. 

After completing a Science and Arts Degree in Anatomy and Physiology at University of Qld, I completed my chiropractic studies at Macquarie University in Sydney in 1997. I began working as an associate chiropractor on the Sunshine Coast in 1998 and eventually established Family Wellness Chiropractic in 2003. My mission is to help as many families to benefit from chiropractic as possible…so that they may grow to their full potential.

I have been practicing part time for the past 3.5 years after having my first daughter annabelle in 2013 closely followed by charlotte in 2014. I am passionate about the health of my family, friends and the community.

I believe that health begins at home and I am here to guide you on your health journey. I believe everyone can  benefit from chriopractic care, from newborns to grandparents and even the family pet!

I started Chiropractic College 6 months after my first adjustment.  I graduated in 2005 from The NZ College of Chiropractic and have since gone on to study many modalities and topics. 

I have looked after families on the Sunshine Coast for many years now and love watching them grow and thrive. 

I love working with mothers and helping them experience wellbeing and health post-natally.

Other Therapists

Acupuncture &
Chinese Medicine

I grew up on the Sunshine Coast where I was involved in a lot of fitness from a young age, so healthy living meant training well. My intuitive nature and passion for environmental conservation led me on a path of mindfully living with nature, which lead me to become a healthcare practitioner.  My studies in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine have been extensive, both in Australia and abroad, including an internship across three Chinese hospitals

“I really believe that stress management, good nutrition, lifestyle habits and taking responsibility as an individual alongside the benefits that Chinese medicine can offer, makes a huge difference to the optimal results for individuals to keep them on a path of wellness”.

Psychologist

“I’m particularly passionate about working with children, adolescents and their families in the context of prevention and treatment of mental health issues and behavioural difficulties.  I place an emphasis on helping each individual move towards a more fulfilling and meaningful life whilst proving them with skills to work through difficulties, and I value a non-judgemental, open and honest relationship with my clients to achieve good outcomes”
