Physiotherapist (Principal Practitioner)

Clare graduated from the University of Notre Dame in 2012 with a double degree in Physiotherapy and Exercise and Sports Science as one of the first cohort to complete it. She went straight into private practice where she has since treated an array of conditions. She has developed an interest in load management to prevent and rehabilitate injuries.

She has most recently been appointed the Head Physiotherapist of the inaugural UWA Women’s Sevens team for 2019 who are currently competing in the nation wide AON University Sevens Competition.

This year she has worked with the U/18 State Basketball Metro Boys team and the RugbyWA Women’s Super W team for their respective National competitions. Last year she also worked with the gold medal winning U/18 State Basketball Metro Boys team, the Womens State Rugby team in the Super W league and the Alliance Cup winning U/18 State Boys Touch Football team. 

Previous Rugby Union teams have included the U/15 and U/16 State Junior Boys teams, U/18 Schoolboys and the WA Sevens teams (Juniors and Seniors). She has worked with the U/16 State Basketball Metro Boys team in 2016 & 2017 and this came off the back of her role as Physiotherapist for the Lady Hawks in the Women’s State Basketball League for the 2016 season. She has previously been involved with the Western Force when they were part of the Super Rugby Competition.

Clare is always seeking to expand her knowledge base and has participated in various courses including:

  • Dry Needling

  • Lower Limb Tendinopathy Management

  • Sporting Hip and Groin Injury Management

  • ASCA Level 1 Strength and Conditioning

  • Running Injuries Level 1 - Assessment, Management, Prevention and Performance

Interests outside of physiotherapy include all sports and she has previously played for the Perry Lakes Lady Hawks in the State Basketball League. Clare also enjoys playing the odd game of touch rugby.
