Rachel graduated from Curtin University, Perth, Australia in 2007 and immediately started working in a private hospital where she developed an interest in treating women’s health conditions. She then furthered her expertise by completing her Masters in Continence and Women’s Health physiotherapy through Curtin University which gave her a strong foundation in understanding pelvic health conditions in men, women and children. Rachel has gained vast clinical experience working in dedicated pelvic health specialist clinics as well as teaching Master’s students at Curtin University. Rachel considers it a privilege to work in this specialty and has a strong sense of curiosity in determining the ‘why’ for each patient. She loves the variety that comes with pelvic health physiotherapy and strongly believes in empowering her patients with a holistic approach to problems. She endeavours to arm patients with knowledge and confidence that enables symptom free engagement in meaningful activity. Rachel is also a qualified clinical Pilates instructor and is passionate about using movement as therapy to build strength, resilience and performance. Rachel regularly attends ongoing professional development courses and conferences to ensure she is up-to- date with the latest research. When she is not working, Rachel enjoys spending time outdoors with her husband and three young children.
