Being a physiotherapist has allowed me for many years to combine two of my greatest passions: While sports has always been a big part of my life – since I’ve been playing judo for 22 years now – I discovered my fascination of medicine and the human body during the compulsory civil service when I was working as a paramedic.

After finishing my bachelor degree in physiotherapy I started working and participated in numerous professional development courses, to enhance both my clinical and theoretical skills. My growing interest in manual therapy and sports brought me to the University of South Australia, which is offering one of the world’s most renowned Master programs in this field.
