Business Owner & Accredited Exercise Physiologist
I grew up right here on the eastern shore of Hobart and have always had a passion for health, exercise and nutrition. I started Your Path to Health in 2011 as I saw a need in the community to support those struggling with chronic conditions. I am so proud to be an exercise physiologist, building the knowledge of what we do in our community. I believe in really understanding the client and their needs, and developing a program that achieves long term success through exercise therapy. I love working with all my clients, but I specialise in treatment during and post cancer diagnosis. My passions outside of my business include spending time at home with my husband and two whippets (Jetta & Maddison), where we share a love of family, sports, travel and camping. I’m also a passionate netballer and currently play in the state-wide competition for OHA.
Manager of Allied Health Services & Accredited Exercise Physiologist
I am a local Tasmanian who has studied and lived in this state. I have always been passionate about exercise, health and fitness. I love being an Exercise Physiologist as it enables me to work with all members of the community to help them reach their rehabilitation and health goals. I have a keen interest in working with those in the community with heart, lung and musculoskeletal conditions and have undertaken specific training in these areas. Working at Your Path to Health has provided me the opportunity to build and grow my leadership skills, while working alongside a brilliant team of providers and reception staff. My passions outside of the office include being self-confessed sports nut and have been involved in many different local sporting teams. I also love hanging out with friends and have keen interest in travel.
Practice Manger & Receptionist
I grew up in Howrah along with my brother and two sisters. I now live with my partner still on the eastern shore with our two dogs and cat. I love my job, there is always something different happening every day and interacting with clients makes for a great work environment. The best thing about working at Your Path to Health is that I get the opportunity to work with my family along with an absolute amazing provider and reception team. My role as practice manger has also helped me grow as an individual as it has given me the opportunity to grow my management skills. When I get some time off I love nothing more than kicking back with a good tv show or movie and I’m also a self-confessed shopaholic.
Receptionist/Assistant Practice Manager
My work background is hospitality, after many years I got up the courage to change my career path, and applied for the position of relief practice manager. I was familiar with Your Path to Health as I had attended sessions with Jess since 2013. Making the change has been the best thing I have done, everyone is so friendly and welcoming at Your Path to Health and I look forward to meeting many more new faces and helping them with their health and well being journey and expanding my knowledge of the industry. My interests outside of work are netball and spending time with my husband and son
I always wanted to work with the human body and I’ve always had an interest in improving patterns of movement from my background as a springboard and platform diving coach. It is a very rewarding profession and I thoroughly enjoy being able to diagnose and treat client’s pain and movement disorders by improving their mobility, function, pain, performance and quality of life. While I am very happy treating all health concerns I’m particular passionate about women’s health, clinical pilates, orthopaedics and neurological physiotherapy. My personal interests include staying fit and healthy where I love to participate in HIIT training classes and Yoga. I also love getting away on the weekends to explore and find adventures.
I have been a dietitian for the 17 years working with a wide range of individuals and organisations in Tasmania and further afield. Working as a dietitian gives me the opportunity to share my enthusiasm for looking for simple clear pathways to improved health and effectiveness in life. I work in a broad range of clinical and general health areas including diabetes, heart disease, cancer, allergies and intolerance, geriatric nutrition and eating disorders through to sports nutrition and generally eating for good health throughout life. At Your Path to Health I have found a team of health practitioners who are 100% focused on making great quality health care accessible to anyone who walks through the door and it’s for this reason I love being a part of the Your Path to Health team. Outside of work I’m an embarrassingly proud Mum! I love my family and spend most of my ‘spare’ time on the side of a soccer field, inside a gymnasium or somewhere in between (hopefully with a good pick me up coffee in hand). I have only two things on my bucket list a visit to the Natural History Museum and barrister lessons and it can’t go unsaid; I love running, a lot , and a long way and with anyone who’ll come along for the trot.
I have worked in Hobart as an osteopath for 9 years in a variety of settings. I moved here from Queensland after graduating as a mature aged student from University in 2010. I became interested in osteopathy after finding that it helped me overcome back and neck pain and stiffness in my late 20’s and helped me get back into running and other sports. I have been interested for a long time in how the human body works both inside and out and am passionate about helping people get their bodies feeling and functioning better so they can get more out of life. Though I use my hands to work on people of all ages I particularly like to help older people who have difficulty with chronic conditions that accompany their back, neck, headaches and other musculoskeletal problems. I am looking forward to working as part of the team of dedicated health professionals at Your Path to Health to help people of all ages achieve their health goals. Outside of work I enjoy bush-walking and camping in the Tasmanian wilderness and playing the saxophone as I would like to learn to play jazz.
Exercise Scientist/Allied Health Assistant/Receptionist
I have just completed my degree in Exercise and Sport Science at UTAS and I am studying a Master of Clinical Exercise Physiology at Charles Sturt University. I have always had a passion for exercise and how it can make people feel better physically and mentally. I have only just started working at Your Path to Health and so far I love it. You will see me working on reception and I also work as Exercise Scientist and Allied Health Assistant in our studio. I love interacting and working with all the clients as I love how exercise can improve peoples quality of life. Outside of work, I compete at a national level for Athletics as a 100m and 200m sprinter, so most weekends you will find me competing in Hobart and around the state. When I am not competing I love to go camping and I am also very interested in travelling.
Group Fitness Instructor
I was born and raised in Pretoria, South Africa and from a young age physical activity was always a big part of my life, where I played a lot of sport growing up. I have had many career changes from working in the mines in South Australia, bartending in Scotland and I.T. support in Hobart. After slowly losing my will to live, working behind a computer screen, I decided to obtain my level IV fitness qualification. I have finally found a career I love and working at Your Path to Health allows me to follow my passion to help others do things they think not possible. My interests outside of work include participating in both weightlifting and cross Fit competitions. I’m also a keen trail runner and when I’m not training, or looking after our 4 children, I enjoy going for multi-day bush walks, and will always take my “real” camera and tripod for some landscape photography. I look forward to meeting with you and working out how we, together, can get you to reach your goals! Whatever they may be.
I love my job as a Receptionist as when clients walk through the door I’m often the first people they see and love to make people feel welcome and at ease before seeing their provider. I enjoy working at YPTH because I get to see firsthand how allied health support can make a real difference in people’s lives. Also one of the best things working at Your Path to Health is it gives me the opportunity to work alongside my three incredible daughters who I’m very proud of as well a group of fantastic providers and reception staff.
My interests outside of work include spending time with my family, friends and of course my two fur babies, Bella and Lennox. I also look after myself by regularly taking part in weight training session at Your Path to Health.
