With health care values of a gentle full spine approach, my chiropractic technique utilizes the longer consultation and includes soft tissue work and trigger point therapy. I have an interest in assessment and manual therapy of all the peripheral joints. My treatments utilize best-practice evidence, patient-centred management and aim to identify and reduce postural and contributing lifestyle factors to ailments.

Graduating nearly 9 years ago in 2008 not only meant so much to me after 5 years of full time study, but also introduced me into a world of excitement and simultaneously apprehension.  Working with Frank Caristo and Laurelle Gradwell since ‘Day 1’ has been a great honour.

Sharing my health care values of a full spine approach and my chiropractic techniques which include soft tissue work, trigger point therapy as well as caring for the pregnant patient have all been immensely enhanced by the large demographic of the Canada Bay region.  Having lived in Haberfield my entire life, Concord not only welcomed me as a new graduate 9 years ago I even consider myself as one of the locals.  Being a chiropractor in Concord has exposed me to treat children, pregnant women, athletes and geriatrics just to name a few.

Another aspect of the chiropractic profession I am proud to be associated with is the Macquarie University Chiropractic Alumni.  Appointed Treasurer in 2009, it has been an eye opening experience dealing directly with the committee and simultaneously with chiropractors of the graduating classes of the Sydney College of Chiropractic and more recently Macquarie University.
