Anna graduated with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy from the University of South Australia in 2006. Anna almost immediately started working with children where her passion for working in paediatrics begun. This journey begun at Novita Children's Services working with children in their homes, schools and communities covering a vast array of conditions, interventions and management for nearly 3 years. Anna then decided to take a brief change from children to work with adults with brain injuries which she enjoyed and learnt greatly from. However, the call back to paediatrics was too loud and she returned back to working with children at the Women's and Children's Hospital in Adelaide where she rotated through all paediatric rosters including neurodevelopmental, pre school and school aged teams, rehabilitation, respiratory, PICU, orthopaedics and she also completed a women's health roster. During that 2 1/2 years she also acted as a senior in both the preschool neurodevelopmental team and the paediatric rehabilitation team.
Anna then made the move to London in 2013 in search of new experiences. Her first role was as a senior physiotherapist at Bupa Cromwell Hospital with an extremely varied caseload of inpatients and outpatients (neurodevelopmental, orthopaedic, neurological, respiratory, musculoskeletal). Anna also worked for a short time in the NHS Camden Borough in community Paediatrics where she provided input at home and in the community to a large complex caseload of children as well as running groups and covering inpatients and assisting clinics at the Royal Free Hospital. More recently Anna completed 18 months of NHS work at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital. Initially her role was covering and managing the physiotherapy service at a special school for children with PMLD and then went on to cover the Community Early Years Physiotherapist Role based at the hospital. Here she managed varieties of clinics, complex caseloads, supervised staff and had a multitude of other clinical and administrative roles and responsibilities.
Anna joined KCC in 2016 and is very happy to be a part of Kikis Clinic to share her passion of working with children with other such therapists, children and their families. She believes strongly in working with children and families to maximise their potential and allow them to be functional and participate in all parts of life.
