B.Physio, M.B.A.

Senior Physiotherapist & Director of Little Movers Physiotherapy

Alice is a physiotherapist with over 15 years experience in various clinical and education roles including community early intervention, hospital and private practice. She first discovered a passion for working with children as the Company Physiotherapist on Billy Elliot the Musical, which had a cast of 55 children, and has since worked with children of all ages and abilities with a wide range of conditions including genetic syndromes, neurological conditions, complex medical conditions, neuromuscular conditions, orthopedic conditions and sporting injuries. She has a special interest in working with babies at risk of a neurological condition or with an undiagnosed delay in gross motor skills (movement).

Alice held a part-time position as a Lecturer in the Physiotherapy Department at La Trobe University from 2013 – 2020, teaching child development and paediatric physiotherapy subjects to the Masters of Physiotherapy students and continues to hold an Honorary Lecturing position. She was a guest presenter to the Australian Physiotherapy Association Paediatric Group on the practical application of Family Centred Care in 2019 and a guest Lecturer to the Master of Physiotherapy students at Swiburne University in 2022 and 2023.

Alice has completed a wide range of paediatric courses including Neuro-Developmental Treatment (NDT) for paediatric gait and aquatic therapy, DIR Floortime (play therapy), the Strengths-based Approach, the Circle of Security baby-caregiver attachment theory, the Hammersmith Infant Neurological Examination training and Melbourne University’s TEDI Telehealth for Early Detection and Intervention for Infants with Developmental Disability. She is a qualified clinical pilates instructor and incorporates principles of core strengthening when developing play-based exercise programs for babies and children.

As a mother to three children, Alice understands the challenges of fitting therapy into busy daily routines. She is passionate about helping children to achieve their full potential and enjoys working collaboratively with families to develop practical and realistic interventions. She believes physiotherapy for children should be play-based, fun and wherever possible, integrated into existing daily routines.
