Skills, training and career highlights
I started my Physiotherapy career in Vienna, in Austria’s biggest trauma hospital after I graduated in 2011 which led to me discovering my passion to treat working and sports accidents. I initially specialised in musculoskeletal Physiotherapy of acute traumatic injuries; immediate care unit patients and traumatic brain injury patients.
Although I’ve worked in many different areas of physio, treating musculoskeletal outpatients has always been my focus. I’ve undertaken extra training to gain extra knowledge around clients needs and treatment possibilities, including, completing Mulligan A/B and Clinical Patient Management. These have been valuable and increased my treatment tools to treat patients in an integrated way, using acupressure massage to activate the body meridians or influencing via visceral therapy, aiding speed of recovery.
Because injuries resulting from playing football, basketball or caused by winter sports used to be on my daily agenda, I was led to undertake an MSc in Sports Physiotherapy and Exercise Medicine at Middlesex University in 2015.
I love to be active in my free time and I enjoy running, gym, yoga, playing tennis, snowboarding and skiing. I also enjoy trying out new restaurants. A particular passion of mine is travel; I lived in Argentina for nearly a year before starting university and my love of exploring and travelling has led to road trips through the USA, Australia and South Africa to London. Living and studying in London has brought me into contact with many interesting people, which I consider to be one of the most positive aspects being a physio; it’s a thrill to get to know a broad diversity of people from all over the world and many different professions and backgrounds.
