Julie graduated as a physiotherapist in 1984 in Auckland and followed up with post graduate qualifications in Sports Physiotherapy in Perth, Australia a few years later. She has worked for many years in adolescent sport and rehabilitation but loves to work with all ages to reach their sporting or lifestyle goals, using manual therapy, exercise prescription, pilates, acupuncture and education.
Always keen to keep fit, Julie is a runner, stand up paddleboarder, yogi and pilates instructor. The kids have grown up and left home, leaving more time to walk the dog, garden and pursue her love of travelling. Having recently made the move across the bridge to live at the Mount, it was time to relocate physio work to this side also, hence the decision to join the Body in Motion team.
