Despite having grown up in Melbourne, Germany and China, Laura’s roots will always be somewhere that involves sand between her toes and waves to catch. After completing her Doctor of Physiotherapy at the University of Melbourne, it was a no brainer to make the permanent move to her childhood holiday paradise, otherwise known as Torquay. When not working, you’ll find Laura swimming, surfing, hiking or avoiding a house fire with her experimental baking.
Growing up a lover of all sports, Laura’s passion for Physiotherapy came about after a running injury of her own. Along her path to recovery, she developed a passion for Pilates which led her to complete her Mat Pilates qualification in 2019. Using Pilates as a tool for rehabilitation exposed her to skills crucial to developing and adapting programs to suit clients of all backgrounds.
Upon deciding to do Physiotherapy, Laura spent time shadowing various clinics as well as working as a Sports Trainer at the Port Melbourne VFL Club before commencing her studies. With a background of competitive running, Laura has experience building general strength and conditioning programs and endeavours to take clients to their highest capacity.
From her own experience, Laura understands the frustrations associated with an injury, and strives to create a safe and empathetic space for all. She enjoys collaborating with her clients to work towards meaningful goal-focused health outcomes that align with her clients’ core values and needs. Through her practice, Laura hopes to pass on her love of a balanced, healthy lifestyle to members of her community.
