Justine graduated from James Cook University with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy in 2008. She spent her first year out at the Townsville University Hospital completing rotations in Intensive care, Medical/Surgical, Musculoskeletal outpatients and Fracture clinics. It was in her last few rotations that Justine developed a strong interest in Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy and soon moved to private practice.
Over the years Justine expanded her knowledge in Occupational Health/Pre-Employment screening and Return to Work for the mining sector before shifting her focus to Orthopaedics, Fracture management and Musculoskeletal particularly spine and jaw. Justine furthered her study in lumbar spine/pelvis, head, neck and jaw, vestibular conditions and clinical education. In recent years, Justine has shifted her passion into clinical education within private practice and as a University tutor. Through these recent roles, Justine learnt the importance of spending time listening to clients and ensuring they have a full understanding of their presenting pathology and treatment pathway. She has developed diverse education techniques and the ability to think outside the box to ensure optimal patient outcomes and client goals are met.
Outside of work Justine loves spending time outdoors and exploring new places with her family, friends and sausage dog.
