“ … for me this is the ideal role I have sought in private practice. To be involved in a team environment with this school-age cohort allows a great opportunity to educate and guide responsible management of musculoskeletal health. To be able to work and communicate with all the staff, coaches, trainers, and health professionals associated with the Sports Precinct is the perfect environment to learn and deliver better outcomes for all the kids who enjoy the facility.”
