Laurelle completed her Bachelor of Exercise Physiology (Clinical) at James Cook University in Townsville, Queensland in 2011. Throughout university Laurelle assisted in many research projects that were centred on elite athletes and their sporting performance. However, it was through a clinical placement with the Townsville Hospital that Laurelle discovered her love for chronic disease rehabilitation.

Upon graduating Laurelle has had experience working in a variety of areas. She spent some time at the Townsville Hospital in cardiovascular rehabilitation centre before moving into the private sector. While working within GP clinics in Townsville Laurelle began specialising in women’s health, geriatric health and disability care.

Laurelle’s passion is to see women coming back to exercise after starting a family, to see the older generations having the functionality to stay in their homes longer, and to allow people with a disability the ability to exercise in a safe and encouraging environment.
