What do you enjoy about working as a Physiotherapist at Kieser?
"The amazing conversations that I get to have with people from all walks of life. As a result, I have clients who have become great friends and mentors."
What is your favourite machine at Kieser?
"The A3, Hip Abduction, I love being able to isolate and load the muscles surrounding the hip. It was an integral part of a hip rehabilitation program of my own. After all, "hips don't lie!"
What is your favourite travel destination?
"Sri Lanka, this wonderful combination of a sleepy surfy island, crazy tuk tuk drivers, hikes through tea plantations and of course flavoursome cuisine."
