I was born and raised in Australia, completing a Bachelor of Physiotherapy with Honours at La Trobe University, Melbourne in 1995, and a Graduate Certificate in Pain Management at the University of Sydney in 2002. Following my graduation, I worked as a physiotherapist in a variety of English-speaking countries, including Australia, Great Britain and South Africa. I have been living and working in Germany permanently since 1997, working as a physiotherapist in the German health care system and part-time as a translator, medical writer, and teacher of English as a foreign language.


In addition to general translations in a variety of fields, I am specialised in the following areas:

- Physiotherapy: all areas
