Tell us about your background in Physiotherapy.
I trained in New Zealand but made Hong Kong my home in 1995. I founded Sports and Spinal Physiotherapy Centres in 2000, SPOT Children’s Interdisciplinary Therapy Centres in 2010 and ProHealth Asia Ltd in 2014.
What are your interests?
I enjoy all types of sports, particularly watching my children play their sports. Even though I haven’t lived in New Zealand for 20 years, I am a huge All Black and Black Caps fan!
Tell us about a life-changing experience or adventure you’ve been on.
Founding Sports and Spinal Physiotherapy Centres has been an amazing journey for the past 15 years and counting. I feel like I have grown up with Sports and Spinal by learning how to support the people who work for us and the patients we treat.
What is your area of expertise?
As an avid sports fan I spent many years working with various international sports teams, events and with individuals at international sporting events such as the ATP tennis events, the Hong Kong Open Squash Tournament and the European/Asian Golf Tours. Previously, I was the Hong Kong National Rugby Team physiotherapist and a member of the Hong Kong physiotherapy team at the 2002 Asian games.
I’m interested in sports-specific biomechanics, and orthotic fitting and advice. I also like to pass on to my patients how top athletes prepare and plan for their events. Physical ability is only one of many elements that brings top athletes success and we can all learn from the different approaches they take to be the best.
What is the most fulfilling part of the job?
Helping people get back their health, having happy staff who are passionate about what we do and watching the company grow.
