Jacqui graduated from University of Sydney as a physio in 2008. Since then she has been crafting her knowledge and skills in musculoskeletal clinics in Sydney and London. She joined the Sports Focus team in 2017.
From her background of running and hockey at state level, Jacqui naturally has an interest in human movement and using exercise as medicine. For 3 years she worked alongside exercise physiologists, who have taught her the importance of good strength training. Jacqui passes this knowledge on in her rehabilitation programmes for muscular and tendon injuries.

As her career progressed, Jacqui developed an interest in neck and back pain due to how common they are in the community and how much they can impact someone’s day to day life.
Jacqui has previously spent 3 years in a rheumatology clinic working with lots of acute and chronic spinal patients. She studied the mechanisms of pain through University of Sydney Pain Modules and has also completed APA Spinal level 1+2 courses. Consequently, when working with back and neck injuries Jacqui understands the importance of debunking the myths about these conditions and prescribing exercise to improve control, coordination and confidence. This could be anything from refining a deadlift to part practice of touching your toes.

Away from the clinic, Jacqui has been an educator for Rocktape Australia for the past 4 years. Here she spends weekends teaching other health professionals the how’s and why’s to using kinesiotape and other hands on techniques.

As a reflection of Jacqui’s experience and professional development, her sessions are jammed packed with tips on how to self-manage, simple but effective exercises and some hands on to help reduce pain. She is a firm believer of making treatment as individualistic as possible and she will work hard with you to make sure your programme works well with your lifestyle and your goals.
