As a keen sportsman, having played on representative teams, Jarred highly values ‘teamwork’ and incorporates this approach into each patient interaction, by carefully listening to and working collaboratively with his patients, using his professional knowledge to help them achieve their goals. He also works as part of Active’s Clinical Education team supporting final year physiotherapy students as they learn the skills they require for their future careers.
Jarred graduated with a Dean’s Commendation for Academic Excellence and First Class Honours and now shares his passion for clinical education by teaching physiotherapy students. He is an Associate Lecturer of Physiotherapy at the University of Queensland.
Jarred is an integral part of our hospital and outpatient physiotherapy teams and really values the opportunity he has to follow his patients through the various phases of their rehabilitation from ‘Prehab’, through the hospital and their outpatient recovery.
Jarred has a particular interest in the vestibular system, which includes parts of the inner ear and brain that process sensory information involved with controlling balance and eye movements. He supports patients recovering from spinal, cranial and vestibular surgery, and patients with dizziness and vertigo, balance problems, headaches and decreased confidence with their mobility.
A life-long learner, Jarred is now working toward a Masters of Business Administration (MBA).
