Natalie attended St Clares College from 2000-2005 for Years 7-12. Natalie was always interested in science, however, in her final year at St Clares, Natalie undertook a human biology elective. After taking this subject, Natalie's interest in science and the human body developed further and after graduating she undertook a Bachelor of Medical Science at the Australian National University. Unsure of what career direction she wanted to take, Natalie begun working at Capital Pathology as a pathology aide in the microbiology department. After a few months she decided that she wanted a career that combined her love for human biology and medicine with her passion for helping people, and so decided to do her Masters in Physiotherapy.
Natalie has now been a physiotherapist for six years and treats all types of musculoskeletal, sporting and workplace injuries. Natalie has a special interest in women’s health physiotherapy and enjoys treating pregnant women with back and pelvic pain along with other musculoskeletal issues associated with this stage of life. Due to her love for this area of physiotherapy, Natalie started a business in 2015 called Bub & Me Physiotherapy, delivering physiotherapy-led prenatal and postnatal exercise classes to Canberra and the surrounding regions.
After the birth of her daughter Lena, Natalie developed an even deeper understanding, interest and appreciation for women’s health. She primarily enjoys working with women not only before and after birth, but also throughout each stage of their lives. Natalie has now also recently opened her own private physiotherapy practice called Origin Physiotherapy & Wellness in Deakin, ACT, where she sees a wide range of patients and her passion for physiotherapy continues to grow.
