Providing you with the best therapists for the best care
Susan graduated from The University of Sydney with a Bachelor of Applied Science (Physiotherapy) in 2008. She started her career at Liverpool hospital as a first year graduate. Here she rotated around different specialties until she had the opportunity to specialize in Hand Therapy and she loved it. She has since worked in both private hospitals and practices in Sydney and the United Kingdom. This has allowed her to further develop her skills ranging from treating acute, traumatic injuries to more chronic hand and wrist conditions.
Susan became a Certified Hand Therapist in 2014 and is a full member of the Australian Hand Therapy Association.
