Angela has recently moved back to Tasmania after a great year of working with Jane Barker and colleagues in 2017. She has had an extensive and rich Pelvic Health physiotherapy experience in both the public and private sectors, treating folks of different sex, sexuality, gender, and identity with pelvic health conditions.
Since 2005 Angela has also been the Pelvic Health Physiotherapy Lead for NSW Health ISLHD. She has been involved in many research and innovative projects with the primary focus of equity and delivering a high-quality evidence-based practice and service within the district. She has witnessed the emergence of Pelvic Health Physiotherapy to encompass an increasingly widening scope of practice. She finds this both exciting and inspiring, and continues to be an active member of the NSW Public Health Physiotherapy, and the APA- Women’s Men’s and Pelvic Health Networks.
Angela feels privileged to be working with people as they share their story during a traumatic or vulnerable time. She strongly believes in listening, and welcomes clients to voice any confusion or concerns, so that management can be individually tailored to their goals and circumstances. She believes in using education and story to empower people to make their own informed health choices. She strongly believes that bodies, minds, and spirit have the capacity to recover, heal and flourish.
Angela strongly advocates a multi-disciplinary team approach, so that people receive the optimal care from the most relevant resources and practitioners. She enjoys the sharing and learning opportunities with her peers and via professional development; and is passionate about promoting Continence and Pelvic Health within communities. This is why she is excited to be part of the HobartOBGYN team!
Outside of work, Angela loves her family and friends, experiencing and adventuring in nature, swimming, staying active, cooking, reading, design, film, travel, culture, community…and relishing moments of quiet.
