Research and Knowledge Translation Lead
Stroke prevention, recovery and rehabilitation

Member Bio

I graduated from the University of Melbourne with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy with honours in 2004 and has worked clinically since this time. In 2022 I was awarded her PhD through the University of Newcastle, Australia. I currently works as an Implementation Research Associate with the AVERT Program at the Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health and I am a Research and Knowledge Translation Lead at Western Health. I am also an affiliate researcher with the University of Newcastle and an Honorary Fellow in the Department of Physiotherapy at the University  Melbourne, Australia.

I value working in interdisciplinary teams to ensure a cohesive approach to stroke care.  I am passionate about optimising rehabilitation and recovery after stroke. I am a member of the Emerging Leader’s Group for the International Stroke Recovery and Rehabilitation Alliance. My research addresses early mobility training early after stroke through to lifestyle behaviour to reduce stroke recurrence risk.  My research regularly involves partnerships with people who will use and apply the evidence including people with lived experience of stroke and clinicians to optimise its relevance and impact.

Outside of work, I like to spend time with my family, going to the beach and hiking in the outdoors.
