Laurelle is an Accredited Exercise Physiologist here at Melbourne Osteohealth, after having recently relocated from sunny Townsville.
Laurelle has loved sports from a young age, starting Netball and Tennis in primary school and continuing both into her adult life. This love for sport crossed over into her professional life too where Laurelle was able to combine a passion for helping people with her love for sport and fitness.
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.
Laurelle is registered with Exercise and Sports Science Australia (ESSA) and the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDiS).
