I am a physiotherapist, wife, mom, sister, daughter and friend (not in order of priority 😊) I qualified as a physio in 2000 and completed my Masters in 2016 both from University of Witwatersrand. Initially I worked at was then known as JHB Gen (now known as Charlotte Maxeke Academic Hospital). Here I gained confidence as a young physio and developed my love for paediatrics. I completed my Paediatric neurodevelopmental training in 2002 and got involved with working with children with disabilities. I still work at a school for children with disability and I call this my morning job. I never thought I would ever get involved in the field of pelvic physio- I mean I was never going to ask about pee, poo and sex and examine areas that I considered taboo. “Never say never”
I fell in love with pelvic floor rehabilitation after having my own issues after having children. I loved learning about how the body should work through pregnancy and birth and how simple education can make such a big impact in post-natal recovery. Through learning about myself, I was able to start helping other women who have had similar experiences.
I completed a one year speciality training course in 2012 and have continued to improve my skills and knowledge in this field over the years through various adult and paediatric courses. I eventually had to fuse my passion for paediatrics with that of pelvic floor.
So now I work with women and children – trying to emPOWER one pelvis at a time My passion for this ever-evolving field continues to grow and I learn the most from my patients every day. my patients continue to teach me every day. I am so grateful to have been able to be part of so many patients pelvic floor journey and I look forward to being a part of many more. I love what I do but mostly I love seeing the look on a patients face when everything clicks and they realise they have the control and confidence to continue without me. look forward to meeting you and being part of your pelvic floor journey!
