Ellen attributes her passion for physiotherapy to the enjoyment she gains from working closely with her patients to help them achieve their goals—whether that be improving function, strength, balance or their general confidence with mobility. With her thorough clinical knowledge, she adopts a caring, hands-on and holistic approach, committed to achieving the best possible outcomes for her patients. Working at Active, Ellen enjoys being able to provide Connected Care for her patients, seeing them both in hospital and then afterwards in our clinics. One of her favourite moments as a physio was seeing a patient walk into the clinic unaided, after treating them in the ICU months prior, when they were unable to stand or walk.
Ellen graduated from The University of Queensland with First Class Honours. Her Honours Research Project examined physical activity in people with Parkinson’s disease. Over her years of practice, Ellen has developed a keen interest and clinical expertise in the management of vestibular and neurological conditions including stroke and Parkinson’s disease and headaches. She values evidence-based practice and the proven benefits of utilising exercise as therapy.
Ellen’s passion for physiotherapy extends to working with her ‘clever and motivated’ colleagues at Active, in a positive and supportive work culture. Ellen loves spending time with friends and family, gardening, baking, reading, and staying active.
