Elaine graduated from University of South Australia in 2016 with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy. Since graduating, Elaine moved to Portland, Victoria. Whilst working as a generalist in the country, she gained great breadth of experience across multiple physiotherapy disciplines. During this time she sparked her interest in women’s health.
She worked with women across the lifespan and had satisfaction in holistically caring for women through pregnancy and beyond. Elaine gained appreciation for what being a women’s health physiotherapist involves.After two years in Victoria, she took the opportunity to backpack and hike through South America before relocating to London. In London, Elaine worked as a locum in the NHS and private hospital setting for a year. She honed her musculoskeletal skillset with a complex and variable caseload to underpin her women’s health skillset. The role at Vital Core was the perfect opportunity to relocate back to her home of Adelaide during the pandemic and continue to progress her career as a women’s health physiotherapist.Elaine has great passion for exercise and leading a healthy, active lifestyle throughout the lifespan. Elaine is a firm believer in exercise as medicine and as a key component in injury prevention. She also recognises the importance of education for those with chronic conditions, and the benefit both physically and mentally of leading an active lifestyle.Outside of work, she has a passion for the outdoors and loves camping, hiking or bike riding on the weekend. She loves variety in her exercise with a jog, spin class and some weights. Elaine loves to visit the Central Market and try some new recipes with the produce. Being newly returned to Adelaide, she’s keen for your suggestions of a great brunch spot or wine bar to check out too!
