Louise graduated from Melbourne University with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy in 2003. She commenced her career as a physiotherapist working in private practice and gained experience in paediatric musculoskeletal and orthopaedic conditions while working with young dancers.

After working in a variety of settings with children and adults, including as onsite Physiotherapist at Victorian College of the Arts (VCA) and Secondary School (VCASS) and Anatomy and Movement lecturer for VCA and Australian Pilates Method courses, she decided to focus on her passion for working with children and moved into paediatric disability. Louise draws on her training and experience in movement when working with children to optimise their gross motor skills.

Louise has a love for ongoing learning and has further developed her paediatric skills and knowledge by completing a range of postgraduate courses including Enhancing Skills in Paediatric Physiotherapy and Neonates and Infants modules at Monash University, Melbourne University’s TEDI, Telehealth for Early Detection and Intervention for Infants with Developmental Disability, and the Hammersmith Infant Neurological Training.

Louise has also completed short courses on Sensory Processing Disorder and Autism, common paediatric orthopaedic conditions, wheel chair and equipment prescription, Cerebral Palsy and physical activity and exercise for children with neuromuscular conditions. Louise has worked with babies and children with a wide range of conditions including global developmental delay, neurological conditions, genetic syndromes, and Autism Spectrum Disorder.

As a mother of three children, Louise works with a family centred approach, understands how to engage children and make Physiotherapy fun! She has sound knowledge of the NDIS system and is passionate about advocating for families and helping children to develop their physical skills to their full potential.
