Originally from the U.S., Kristine completed her Bachelor of Science in Health and Human Sciences with a pre-emphasis in Physical Therapy in 2013. In 2014, she swapped out sunny southern California for the South Eastern suburbs of Melbourne. She recently graduated with her Doctor of Physiotherapy from The University of Melbourne.
Kristine has worked in the health sector for over 8 years with previous experience as a physical therapy aid, a sports trainer, and a massage therapist. She has worked patients and clients of all different ages. She is passionate about musculoskeletal injuries, including sports injuries, and has a soft spot for those with neurological conditions, such as Parkinson's and MS. While most of her experience is via face-to-face, she has been treating many of her patients via telehealth to continue to make physiotherapy accessible to patients.
Outside of work, Kristine has picked up the Victorian passion for Australian rules footy and plays on a senior women's team for Red Hill FNC. She is compassionate, down-to-earth, and strives to help others.
