Robin graduated in 1987 and commenced her physiotherapy career at the Alfred Hospital. This was an exciting opportunity to learn about broader aspects of medicine and the physio role as part of a team.
Experience in ICU, the Road Trauma Unit and the Heart/Lung Transplant service proved an invaluable basis for a career in Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy.
Robin travelled and worked overseas, completing a Post Graduate Diploma in Orthopaedic Manipulative Therapy whilst living in South Africa.
