About Laura Haslem
Laura graduated from Charles Sturt University, Bathurst, in 2010. After university, she moved to Newcastle starting off with a local physiotherapist before moving into occupational rehabilitation both as a clinician and later as a rehab provider.
In recent years, she has returned to clinic-based practice where she has specialised in oncology exercise and pre and postnatal rehabilitation. She also enjoys working alongside NDIS, DVA and WorkCover patients.
Her interests outside work include having a punt on the ponies, watching and playing all types of sport and running around with her three kids.
I enjoy helping people realise what their body is capable of despite pain, trauma, disease or illness facing them – and that’s what exercise physiology is all about.
I enjoy the patient centred, progressive approach to treatment.

I love the country. Especially on a great day by the river, bbq and an esky full of beers with my family.

I was born a Novacastrian before moving to a small country town called Walcha (pronounced Wol-ka), after the closure of BHP and my dad completing his teaching degree. I have a mean handshake and am known to my friends as Boz.
