After qualifying as a physiotherapist in New Zealand in 2005, Cathy decided to seek fairer weather and moved to Brisbane to start her career. In sunny QLD, Cathy worked in private physiotherapy clinics in Sumner Park and then Birkdale.
In 2015, Cathy relocated to Perth. There she worked in private practice in Cannington, and after deciding to stay in WA permanently, she took ownership of Manning Physio, rebranding it to Physio Inq Manning, in June 2018.
Cathy has a Post-Graduate Certificate in Western Acupuncture and Dry Needling and has completed a Masters by Research degree at The University of Notre Dame, Fremantle. She treats all types of injuries and loves working with her patients to help them return from being acutely injured and in pain, back to sport, work or their favourite leisure activities. She has had many years' experience running both mat and studio Pilates classes, and believes that exercise should benefit both physical and mental health.
In 2021, Cathy become a mum, and later that same year she took ownership of her second clinic, Spearwood Physio, rebranding it to Physio Inq Spearwood.
Cathy's favourite leisure activities include spending time with her family and dogs (standard poodles named Brian and Max), gardening, and anything creative (think renovations, painting, cooking and nowadays Lego). A fun fact about Cathy is that she has represented New Zealand, Queensland and Western Australia, in the sport of long-distance rifle shooting......so look out!
