Emma graduated as a Master of Physiotherapy from the University of Sydney in 2014 after completing a bachelor of Exercise Science in Wollongong 2012. Life as physio started well before graduation, during her undergraduate degree Emma worked as a physio aide in sports clinics, largely driven by a strong sporting background and her own injury struggles through her netball career. Since graduating she has acquired a wide range of experience within different sectors of physiotherapy including hospital, private practice, gyms and sporting clubs. After a 2 year position at a busy, central London sports clinic, Emma developed an interest in Functional Rehab and Pilates.
