Jen is an avid supporter of safe exercise both during and after pregnancy and helping women to enjoy their pregnancies by reducing pain and discomfort. Continuous education into specialised treatment of the lumbar spine and pelvic regions, has assisted Jen in becoming the ‘go-to’ physio for pregnancy pain in her area.
In 2016 Jen gained her certification with the Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute (APPI) and shortly after joined their team as a clinical Pilates educator for all 3 matwork courses. In the clinic, Jen makes use of her clinical Pilates training in both 1:1 treatments of particular presentation/injuries and conducts small group classes in the on-site gym space at her physiotherapy clinic in Officer, Victoria.
