WELCOME JESS! another accredited exercise physiologist joins the team

Jess is the latest Accredited Exercise Physiologist to join the RehWork team. Don't be fooled by the blonde hair, she is driven and excited to share her experiences in clinical practice with the team.

Jess has previously worked in the field of paediatric disability, with a primary focus on improving function, quality of life and prevention on chronic health conditions. She strives to provide (and develop) evidence based practice, which is demonstrated by her recent completion of a research Masters degree focusing on reducing cardio-metabolic risk in children with intellectual disability. Her research and clinical experience has provided opportunities to implement patient-centered lifestyle and behaviour modification programs, based on holistic models of care.

An academic demonstrator at the University of New South Wales, Jess has a particular interest in musculoskeletal rehabilitation and functional biomechanics.

In her spare time, she enjoys heading out for a ride on her push bike, a game of cricket or two, or a sneaky surf - which seems to almost be a prerequisite to join the team at RehWork.
