Alyssa wants to help her patients achieve their personal goals so that they can get back to doing the things they love. Educating people on how to use good movement patterns is important to Alyssa, as she believes being pain-free shouldn't be the end goal - moving well is.
She hopes to improve patient's quality of life through functional exercise, various Physiotherapy treatments and promoting independence.
Alyssa grew up in Christchurch and having a passion for science and being active, she came to Dunedin to study.

While studying, Alyssa became a certified Sports Medic and volunteered for the Green Island Colts and Seniors Rugby Team to gain experience in first aid, taping, massage and attending to accute injuries.

My friends and I even tried to get one of our short story picture books published when we were 12 years old but of course we got turned down.
