Annette was a registered nurse for 10 years prior to being a physiotherapist. SHE worked in gynaecology, general medicine and surgery, and in aged care.
Life has been a gentle flow forever pulling me towards women’s health. I love working with women and watching them succeed with their bodies and lives.
