Rachelle graduated from the University of Stellenbosch,South Africa in 2012 completing her compulsory year of government service in rural North-Eastern South Africa. Rachelle has a passion for rehabilitating patients from all walks of life across the physiotherapy spectrum.
Her next year was spent in Cardiothoracic and General ICU. In 2015 Rachelle moved over to Musculoskeletal Rehab and completed her certificate in Orthopaedic Manipulative Therapy. Over the next four years Rachelle enjoyed working with Elite Tri-Athletes and long-distance runners to the respiratory management of those acute chest infections, working within a multi-disciplinary practice. Rachelle was recruited to New Zealand and moved over in January 2019 with her husband, her first job over here being at a local Palmerston North Hand Therapy Clinic. However the desire to treat all injuries, head-to-toe, led Rachelle to joining us at RPC in February 2020.
Her passion for returning patients to previous level of function and her interest in rehabilitation led Rachelle to completing her 500hour Integral Yoga Teacher Training in 2017.
In her spare time Rachelle enjoys horse-riding, walking and yoga.
