About Eliza
Masters of Physiotherapy

Since graduating from La Trobe University with a Masters of Physiotherapy Practice Eliza has been working in the private sector with a keen interest in treating both acute and chronic musculoskeletal injuries. Eliza enjoys working with individuals of all ages and health conditions to achieve their goals and maximise their quality of life.

Eliza’s strong interest in sporting injuries led her to being a physiotherapist for Western Bulldogs VFLW team and enjoys creating rehabilitation plans focusing on return to sport and maximising sporting performance. Eliza currently works at La Trobe Sport and Exercise Medicine Research Centre working on reducing injuries in female footballers and has previously worked on hip studies led by Jo Kemp.

Whilst studying Eliza completed paediatric placements in both Vietnam and India and placements in regional and metropolitan hospitals.

...and a little more!

Eliza grew up playing many sports predominately basketball and netball and has previously played for Ballarat Rush. Prior to returning to Ballarat she played Australian rules football for Marcellin in the VAFA. Outside of work she loves to travel and go out for brunch (don’t we all!!)
