C H I R O P R A C T O R
Originally from Perth, Western Australia, my journey started back in 2010 when I stumbled into this amazing thing called chiropractic, it impacted my life so much after many years travelling the globe, I settled in beautiful Aotearoa to follow my dream, graduating from the world-renowned New Zealand College of Chiropractic.
I am passionate about igniting the body's ability to heal and empowering my people to join me on a more sustainable journey of health. I LOVE working with families to be the healthiest version of them self to get the most out of life. Although my real passion is working with the younger members of our community, I believe that every child should have the opportunity to get their nervous system checked & adjusted to start life clear & connected!
I am very grateful for the incredible experiences I have had to connect & adjust remote communities around the world such as Haiti, Dominican Republic & Rarotonga. These incredible experiences have shaped who I am as a chiropractor and shown me the importance of connection & comm-UNITY. I believe that everyone should have access to chiropractic & this sense of community is the essence of Native Chiropractic.
If I am not at Native you will find me exploring Sumner beach or the Port hills with Elke our German Shepherd, playing in the veggie garden or creating nourishing food.
I love the Sumner community and I look forward to you being a part of ours here at Native Chiropractic.

Sumner is where I call home, growing up here, spending most of my days up in the hills, at the beach surfing, fishing and diving I feel so grateful for the community & family feel that Sumner radiates.
For the past few summers I have worked as a surfing instructor which sparked my passion for working with people. My passion for surfing lead me to Indonesia where I explored the jungles and tea plantations, here I knew that I wanted to work alongside people, families and their health & wellbeing, an added bonus, within the community. This gave me the spark and passion to complete my studies in Sociology and Human Services.
Chiropractic has had a huge influence on my overall health and wellbeing which is something I am so grateful to Dr Elly for, this makes me very excited to be part of the Native community & be apart of your health journey.
