Senior Physiotherapist Bronte.
Hailing from Albany at the very bottom of WA, she has now called Nhulunbuy home for over 2 years. Bronte has worked in private practice for over 4 years, and has additional training in Women’s Health, Paediatrics, Sports Physio and Pilates.
Her main interest is in Women’s Health and post natal care, mainly because it’s an area not many women know about but can managed and treated so effectively with Physiotherapy. She believes seeing patients improve and be able to continue doing the things they love is the best part of Physio.
Outside of work Bronte enjoys cooking, spending time with friends camping and fishing, and running her camp dog Remy! Family is very special to her and she always looks forward to the time when she does get to see them. Bronte has travelled to Europe, China, Thailand and throughout Australia, and is hoping to continue exploring!
Bronte is available for physio appointments Tuesday to Saturday, and runs our morning and Saturday Pilates» View details
