Amy completed her Physiotherapy degree at Charles Sturt University in 2002. Since this time, she has worked in both Australia and the United Kingdom within a variety of acute, sub-acute, and community settings.

Amy has a specific interest in Neurological Rehabilitation and loves working with clients at home and in the community due to the variety and challenges this work provides. She believes ‘Movement is a medicine for creating change in a person’s physical, emotional, and mental states’ and ‘Behind you are challenges you’ve met. Before you lies new possibilities’.

Amy is currently a committee member on the Australian Physiotherapy Association’s (APA) Victorian Disability Committee. She has extensive experience in supporting clients in managing:

  • Strokes
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Acquired brain injuries
  • Amputations
  • Neurological and multi-trauma injuries with complex biopsychosocial presentations
  • Neurological degenerative disorders (e.g. Parkinson’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Muscular Dystrophy, Huntington’s Disease, Motor Neuron Disease)
  • Complex manual handling situations

Amy is LSVT BIG trained to assist Parkinson’s Disease and similar clients with movement difficulties. She enjoys supporting clients to trial:

  • Aquatic therapy (hydrotherapy) and gym
  • Sports and recreation activities
  • Specialised equipment, such as wheelchairs, standing frames, mobility aids, hoists and transfer equipment
  • Healthy lifestyle change and personal empowerment

Outside of work, Amy loves to spend time with her 3 boys, running with her dogs, and gardening.

This year Amy will celebrate 12 years with IRS.
