JUST FOR FUN

  • Coffee order:  Mocha with a shot of vanilla and 2 sugars.

  • Love/hate exercise:  Love to exercise in Australia, but I hated exercising during the winter months back home in the US.

  • Sport or exercise? More into sport than exercise, I used to ride horse and play ultimate frisbee.

  • Morning or night person: Night person!

  • Fun fact: Robert De Niro is a distant relative on my mother's side - his father's brother, John, was married to my grandmother's sister and they had one child. 

  • Any major injuries: I've had good luck so far with no major injuries.

  • Favourite meal: Chicken piccata.

  • Best part of being a health professional: Getting to know each client as an individual and being able to support them to live a functional and independent life.
