Belinda studied Physiotherapy at La Trobe University and graduated in 1993. Using her wide physiotherapy experience Belinda has honed a special interest in Women’s health particularly management of incontinence, prolapse, preparation for and recovery after pelvic surgery, pelvic joint pain during pregnancy, abdominal /pelvic floor muscle weakness and pre and postnatal pilates.
Belinda works with Dr. Pat to develop personalised programs to help promote positive health outcomes for women. As a mother of two young girls, she understands the needs of women and is motivated by the success physiotherapy has in making a lasting change to women's lives.
"It is an exciting time to work in Women’s health with new research continuing to provide advancements. To be able to make a change in a woman’s life, to see a smiling face return and know you have assisted with their individual need is fantastic."
Annette has been with the practice since it’s beginning and has taken on the role of Administration Team Leader. She is one of the friendly faces who will greet you at the front desk and help manage all your bookings. She has had a varied career in Computer programming, IT consulting, administration and running a family business.
"It’s wonderful to be involved in the medical sector and I enjoy the challenge of learning new things, meeting new people each day and cuddling all the beautiful babies."
Kylie is a registered nurse and midwife and as our practice nurse, she helps Dr. Pat with the 'in rooms' procedures. She also helps keep track of when you are due for your pap smears and new IUDs. Kylie is a gentle and welcoming person who helps everyone feel calm and at ease.
"The convenience for women who can have a procedure in the rooms, instead of in a hospital with greater out-of-pocket costs, is a great service to our patients. I love being able to help women move towards their best health."
Kerri is a new addition to the administration team. She is the mum of two lovely children and being a mother is the highlight of her life. She has moved into the medical field of customer service because she loves helping people through their journey in health.
"The patients that come to our clinic are fantastic. I love getting to know them and their families."
Brigid is the Business Manager at the Practice. She has been a Podiatrist, Marketer, Communication Manager and has now combined health and management to become Pat's right-hand woman, in work and in life. Together they make a family of six with their four beautiful, active boys.
"I am constantly amazed at what women put up with in terms of their health. The solution is often so simple I wonder why we put ourselves on the bottom of our own 'to do' lists!"
