“I have over 15 years of experience working with children in which time I have become passionate about optimizing an infant’s development. I undertook my paediatric training program at The Royal Children’s Hospital. I went on to complete my Doctorate at The University of Melbourne in 2013 focusing on motor development in children born prematurely. I have worked in many clinical settings including Neonatal Intensive Care Units and developmental assessment clinics in which I have specialized in early infant and childhood development particularly in high risk infants such as those born preterm and those with neurological impairments.
I believe it is important to practice within a family based model of care and I support and have had many roles in ongoing clinical research and teaching in providing evidence based practice within the paediatric physiotherapy profession. I have professional collaboration with a range of medical and health professionals in the hospital and community settings.
I hold monthly Baby Moves and Infant Massage classes teaching parents the techniques and benefits of positive touch and massage. I also discuss tips for tummy time, positioning and play to assist in your baby’s development.
I look forward to seeing you in one of my classes or contact me if you have any concerns with your baby’s development.”
