Anne has worked as a physiotherapist since 1977 and her passion for the profession and for ongoing education and learning has never abated. She has a special interest in spinal physiotherapy, qualifying as a manipulative physiotherapist in 1983 and later working as a tutor on the NZ Manipulative Physiotherapy programme. She has also taken a strong interest in treating people with persistent pain problems and feels physiotherapists have the wide knowledge and skill base needed to help with these conditions. These days she is particularly passionate about the value of physiotherapy for older people and enjoys working with them to make this stage of life as fulfilling as possible. Anne has owned her own practices in Havelock North for most of her working life but has recently shifted to live and work in the Hutt Valley, where she loves the energy and freshness of the climate and the people. She has joined the e-bike community and finds it extremely easy to commute around the hills of Lower Hutt and to park!
