About these Clinics/Practices

I am an Exercise Physiologist who completed a Bachelor of Applied Science Human Movement and Graduate Diploma of Exercise Rehabilitation in Ballarat, class 2005.

I live with CFS, IST, POTS, hEDS, MCAS and chronic pain. I grew up in sub-elite sport of Swimming and Netball but played everything I could. I experienced multiple injuries, surgeries and ill health. In 2007, I became unwell with Idiopathic Pericarditis at 24yo, which started the cascade of symptoms and conditions presenting. I was dismissed, gaslighted and told I was just experiencing stress and anxiety. Prescribed antidepressants and sent to see a Psychologist. I had many horrible years ahead however I was able to adapt my personal experience, the evolving evidence and clinical EP knowledge to help more people with these conditions.

My primary focus with patients is education. Knowledge is power and understanding your condition/s is the first step in being able to manage, implement tools and strategies to identify and manage triggers and setbacks and make gradual steps towards movement and exercise. I work primarily via telehealth, however also have face to face appointments available at 2 clinics in Melbourne.

I started Dizzy hEDS & Co. in 2022 after not being able to be given the balance with my health and the special needs as a single Mum to my beautiful 4-year-old who follows in my genetic footsteps. Now I get to focus on my passion in my own business, Dizzy hEDS & Co. focusing on Ehlers Danlos Syndromes (EDS), Hypermobility Spectrum Disorders (HSD) and the comorbidities of autonomic dysregulation syndromes, dysautonomia, POTS, pain, ME/CFS, MCAS and also Long COVID.

I run a private Facebook Group for people wanting to start a family, support for pregnancy, labour and post-partum care living with these conditions. I presented at the 2022 Arizona EDS Conference on ‘Pregnancy and post-partum care’ and again in 2023 for the Dublin Conference on ‘Finding comfort in school and the workplace with EDS & HSD’.

I take a holistic, patient centered approach as well as being trauma informed and inclusive to those with neurodivergence and LGBTQQIP2SA. 

I am able to support families through all stages of managing the education system and accessing the required support so that students of all ages are able to reach their full potential academically whilst managing their many health issues.
