A bit about Sarah
I am a proud Biripi woman. I have a passion for neurological physiotherapy and have worked in both Sydney and Melbourne since graduating in 2017. Working in public health has shown me the opportunities that a degree in physiotherapy can provide. Currently studying a Master of Public Health, I hope to apply this to community health promotion and prevention programs within Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.
