Tanya graduated from La Trobe University with a Bachelor of Health Sciences and Master of Physiotherapy Practice. Since this time, Tanya has worked in private practice and spent time working across various levels of football including the Calder Cannons in the TAC Cup, U17 Vic Metro Squad and also with the AFL’s National Academy and Multicultural/indigenous talent camps. This experience has helped develop a keen interest in diagnosing and rehabilitating sporting injuries.
Furthermore, Tanya has spent the past few years running clinical and fitness based Pilates classes, so she appreciates the importance of managing the aches and pains caused by day-to-day life. Ultimately, her aim during treatment is to not only provide relief from acute symptoms, but also to address the underlying causes to prevent recurrent issues in the future.
