PhD (Exercise Physiology) - Murdoch University
BSc (Hons) in Exercise Physiology - Murdoch University
Born and raised in Perth I have always wanted to help my community be the best version of themselves. This was only spurred on when I completed my Bachelor's degree in 2012, equipped with skills and knowledge to help people become more active in safe and effective ways. I have been lucky enough to help many people incorporate exercise and physical activity into their lives through Heart Health and Fitness as well as the HBF Outdoor Fitness Program.
While it was never really something I endeavoured to achieve, my passion for research began in 2013 when I completed my Honours investigating the acute responses of healthy adults to single-leg and double-leg cycling. This flowed on into my PhD when I designed, conducted and analysed several studies examining the short- and long-term effects of single-leg cycling in healthy middle-aged adults. During my PhD, I worked in the Cardiac Rehabilitation Gym at Fiona Stanley Hospital. I met so many amazing people during this time and learnt many invaluable lessons.
I have also held a casual academic position at Murdoch University since 2013, teaching across undergraduate and postgraduate courses. Most notably, I have been teaching the Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation unit since 2017. I love that I can share my knowledge and experience with the new exercise physiologists who will go on to do great things.
I want to help everybody achieve lifelong healthy lifestyles that will ultimately improve your physical, psychological and social well-being. I believe that with the right (evidence-based) guidance, everyone can find the right balance where exercise is incorporated into your daily health hygiene practices just like brushing your teeth.
