Fiona graduated from Victoria University in 2005, obtaining a Bachelor of Science (Health Science), and Masters of Health Science (Osteopathy). After initially working in a large multidisciplinary clinic, Fiona opened Ascot Vale Osteopathy in 2008, and is the Director and Principal Osteopath.
Fiona aims to provide each individual patient with the best, safest and most effective Osteopathic healthcare. Fiona has treated
athletes of all sports for many years. Coming from a sporting background of state level indoor and field hockey, swimming, weights, gym, yoga and long distance running, Fiona aims for the patient to recover from their injury as quickly as possible, with minimal time off from their activity, and with home-based strategies and techniques to reduce the incidences of future injury occurrences.
Obstetrics and Osteopathy are another keen interest for Fiona – She enjoys assisting the mother’s body throughout the pregnancy, and in preparation for birth. Seeing the progression of the mother’s body through both pre and postnatal periods is extremely rewarding.
In her spare time, Fiona loves going to the gym, reading, and especially spending time together with her husband Gary, and two daughters – Mae and Eloise.
