She just loves incorporating a hands on approach with exercise therapy to assist patients to become the best possible versions of themselves.

In 2016 Ashleigh spent time in a Private Sports Medicine Hospital in Mumbai, India where she worked with some amazing orthopaedic surgeons who are pioneering arthroscopic surgery. While working with this team, she worked largely in rehabilitation programs for the ankle, knee, and shoulder. She has also observed many surgeries with leading orthopaedic surgeons in Melbourne to gain further insight to the surgeries she helps her patients recover from. Ashleigh has worked as a Sports Trainer for football clubs for 7 years and loves to be a part of a strong team with a supported community.
