Bio:

Growing up in New Zealand, Shannon competed in a variety of sports but was a particularly keen netballer, playing at representative regional level. After suffering a season-ending knee injury and undergoing surgery, she was motivated to pursue a career in Physiotherapy and help others return to their sports/interests. She graduated with a Bachelor’s degree from Auckland University of Technology in 2015.

Following this, Shannon spent the next three and half years as musculoskeletal physiotherapist in a private practice clinic in Auckland. During this time, she gained valuable experience treating a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions and injuries.. She also worked as a research assistant investigating the effect of pre-operative rehabilitation in ACL injuries. In conjunction to her work in the clinic, Shannon was also the team physiotherapist of local rugby team’s Premier for 4 years, providing side-line management and helping elite athletes reach full fitness and return to the field.

Shannon believes in a balanced treatment approach when it comes to Physiotherapy, utilising a combination of hands-on techniques and exercise prescription. She uses evidence-based practice to help clients overcome disorders, challenges, and injuries, and achieve their physical health goals. She also places great emphasis on education to enhance patient understanding of their injury/condition.

In her spare time, Shannon enjoys living an active lifestyle. You will often find her in the gym, trying the newest fitness classes, exploring the outdoors or out on the water surfing. Shannon is also a keen foodie and enjoys going to local markets and trying the latest cafes and restaurants.
