Ellie joined the Terrace Physio Plus team in 2015, shortly after completing her Bachelor of Physiotherapy (Honours) degree at the University of Newcastle.  Ellie has participated in many sports from a young age, including football (soccer) and athletics.  She also referees football at a national level, with some of her greatest achievements being appointments to two Westfield W League Semi-finals as well as to an International friendly between the Young Matildas and the Korea Republic!

Ellie is able to combine her passion for human movement and injury prevention with her manual therapy skills to help support and motivate her patients through their recovery journey and have them moving and feeling better as soon as possible!
