Georgia is passionate about goal directed physiotherapy within a family centred care model. 

She values the role physiotherapy can play in promoting and optimising health and wellbeing for the entire community.

 

Since graduating from La Trobe University, Georgia has worked as a physiotherapist in paediatrics in a specialist school, the Victoria Paediatric Rehabilitation Service (VPRS) and a public hospital with newborns through to young adults.

 

Dedicated to ongoing professional development, she has already completed a range of paediatrics courses with more planned. 

 

She volunteers with the Very Special Kids, providing support to children and families during their stay. 

 

Outside of work, Georgia enjoys training and competing in triathlons, and is preparing for her first ironman!

She is excited to get active with the kids at Splash and is especially looking forward to our physiotherapy intensives!

We help babies, children and young people learn everyday functional activities

to participate in life at home, school, and in the community.

We see children are part of a family

  • Families know their children best

  • Children do best in their own environments

  • We find strategies that fit in with your everyday life

  • We form respectful, cooperative partnerships with families

  • We value Melbourne's diverse community

We are professional, playful and up to date

  • We are professional, friendly, fun, and love the work we do

  • Coordinating with your health and education services helps everyone work towards their goals

  • We are committed to life long learning. We are highly skilled and up to date. 

  • We are constantly improving

We teach the way kids learn

  • Children learn through play

  • Every achievement is celebrated

  • We apply the science behind neuroplasticity in practical strategies to optimise learning

  • We use a strengths based approach

  • The earlier the better and it's never too late! We work with babies through to young people

  • We observe carefully, adjust moment to moment, to: meet your individual learning needs; find the 'just right challenge'; optimise your chance to learn

We celebrate small steps towards participation goals

  • Participation is key

  • We start with your participation goal. Then we drill down to small details in body structure and function to help you learn functional skills

  • We support all areas of development

  • We advocate to address social, environmental, policy and institutional barriers to participation

  • Swim safer skills and behaviours are part of every aquatic physiotherapy session

  • Being active is good for everyone
