My Profile Summary - Please contact me for an up-to-date copy of my resume:
After completing my formal education, my current goal is to enter the workforce as both a new graduate musculoskeletal physiotherapist and accredited exercise physiologist to obtain as much clinical experience as possible. Using the theoretical and practical knowledge gained in both professions over the past 6 years of university study, I hope to affect positive change in the lives of those in need of my services. This includes utilising physiotherapy skills in the acute phase of injury to diagnose and treat, and applying knowledge in exercise physiology to manage their injury long term through exercise.
Despite being a new graduate, I have gained much clinical experience over the past 5 years through student placements in both exercise physiology and physiotherapy. This includes being apart of numerous rehabilitation fields that involve working with musculoskeletal, orthopaedic, neurological, cardiac and elderly patients. I therefore strongly believe I can be a great asset to your team in endorsing the necessary skills that you seek as a physiotherapist whilst being able to offer the added benefit of being able to provide exercise physiology services.
I have previous experience working independently as an exercise physiologist and have had the opportunity to apply physiotherapy related skills in several sport coverage roles. In addition, five years of experience in the workforce in positions that require high customer service has enabled me to develop excellent communication skills and a professional work ethic where a key strength of mine is the ability to build rapport with clients of all demographics. Furthermore, I am an out-going and enthusiastic individual who is accustomed to working in a team environment as evident through my participation in various extra-curricular activities.
Having played a variety of sports and sustaining many injuries myself, I have a strong passion and interest in the musculoskeletal field. After suffering an ACL rupture twice and going through the rehabilitation process of an ACL reconstruction, I understand how frustrating and discouraging an injury may be to an individual. As such, it allows me to empathise with this patient population where I have a strong motivation and desire to promote recovery through exercise rehabilitation.
This is a key reason why I want to become a musculoskeletal physiotherapist. I wish to thrive upon the opportunity of working in a private clinic that is surrounded by experienced and knowledgeable health professionals that ultimately will help me to develop and grow as a physiotherapist.
