Bachelor of Physiotherapy (Distinction), University of Otago
Olivia decided to study physiotherapy as she wanted an active job where she could help people and thought it aligned well with her love of sports. As she progressed through her studies, she discovered her love for neurorehabilitation and paediatrics. A paediatric placement and volunteering with a few young boys with Autism, Global Developmental Delay, and Cerebral Palsy lead her to a role working in a Special school after graduating. After three years, Olivia moved over from New Zealand to work at NAPA Melbourne. Olivia loves working in paediatric therapy as it requires creativity, problem solving, and to be a little bit silly. Outside of NAPA Olivia can be found playing all sorts of sports. As a former soccer player, she has recently changed codes and is now training for her next boxing match. She is also a bit of a foodie, plant mum, and loves adventuring and exploring the outdoors, especially anything to do with water.
