Caitlin is an Accredited Exercise Physiologist here at Melbourne Osteohealth. She has experience from the Royal Melbourne Hospital and Austin Hospital in several areas, with a strong interest in musculoskeletal, neurological, mental health and disability disciplines.
Caitlin’s background as a lifetime athlete led to an interest in pursuing biomechanics in further study. She completed her Bachelor of Exercise and Sport Science (Clinical Exercise Physiology) at the University of Queensland in 2014, where she also honed her passion for education as a student tutor. Occasionally unconventional – favouring application and enjoyment over rephrasing textbook explanations – she successfully navigated students through biology, anatomy and biomechanics.
Upon graduating, she returned to her home town of Melbourne to begin her career.
Caitlin’s approach to exercise is accessibility, underpinned by education and collaboration. She prides herself on her ability to adapt exercise to your current needs, challenges and successes. She firmly believes including the client in decision-making is critical to effective outcomes, in recognition of the lived experience they bring and to tailoring exercise interventions to the individual.
