Following on from her undergraduate degree in Exercise and Sports Science, Ally graduated from a Master of Physiotherapy and a Master of Exercise and Sport Science from the University of Sydney. Since then, she has worked at St Vincent’s Private Hospital and North Shore Private Hospital and Sydney Children’s Hospital, gaining experience in a wide range of areas of Physiotherapy.

Ally is one of our Women’s Health Physiotherapists. She has post-graduate certification in Women’s Health, and has been trained by Neutral Bay’s Libby McDonald, who is one of the leading Physiotherapists in this field.

She enjoys treating pelvic floor related conditions, such as incontinence, overactive bladder, prolapse, bowel dysfunction, pelvic pain disorders, along with conditions which accompany pregnancy and early motherhood, such as; mastitis, pelvic girdle pain, rectus diastasis (tummy separation), conditions of the thumb and wrist, lower back, neck and shoulders. She is highly passionate about helping women with these, often, more sensitive conditions and takes a very caring treatment approach.

By combining her knowledge as an Exercise Physiologist, as well as knowledge gained through Women’s Health and Pilates training, Ally runs pilates-based exercise classes for pregnant women as well as our Mum’s and Bub’s classes for our post-natal mums.

Outside of work, Ally enjoys travelling the world, eating delicious food and relaxing at the beach.
