She has an ardent interest in musculoskeletal physiotherapy and post-operative orthopaedic rehabilitation.

Her research paper was published in the Journal of Rehabilitation Medicine in 2015. Louise achieved a Dean’s Commendation for consistently high achievement for each semester of her undergraduate degree.
Louise facilitates patient success in achieving functional goals, through detailed and outcome-based pulmonary rehabilitation programs, so that they may lead happier and healthier lives.
