Stef is our newest physiotherapist in the Core Physio Adelaide CBD team, joining us in January 2022. She completed her Bachelor of Physiotherapy with Honours at the University of South Australia. She treats a wide range of conditions, with a special interest in sports injuries and helping people get back to moving.
Recently, she sat down with Charlotte from the Adelaide CBD admin team for a Q&A….
Why did you choose to become a physiotherapist?
“I have always had an interest in the way the body works and moves, particularly in a sporting context. I also love helping people be the best version of themselves so what better way to combine the two than to become a physiotherapist!”
What do you enjoy most about being a physiotherapist?
“The best part about being a physio is getting people back to doing what they love – whether that is sport, Pilates or taking the dog for a walk. There is truly nothing better than getting clients back to 100% or ideally 110%!”
What do you like to do outside of work?
“I love to keep active and move my body outside of work. I play netball for Contax Netball Club and I’m currently playing my 13th season this year! I also enjoy going for walks, going to the gym and doing Pilates in our studio at Core Physio Adelaide CBD.”
Do you have any pets?
“I have an eight month old Kelpie X Border Collie X Koolie named Bob. I love to take Bob for walks and adventures to the dog park so he can run and use up some of his abundance of energy!”
What’s something on your bucket list?
“I would really love to travel to Europe again, especially during summer. My bucket-list destinations are Spain, Portugal, Nice in France and the Amalfi Coast in Italy.”
If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
“I would have to say pasta because it’s so versatile and there are so many options! My favourites are homemade spaghetti bolognese and carbonara – yum!”
What TV shows are you currently binging?
“When I get a chance to watch TV, I love to watch a variety of new and old shows. My favourite shows include Suits, Drive to Survive and Bridgerton. I also love watching movies, especially the Marvel series.”
