Shelly (Michelle) joins the Body Organics team after having moved to Brisbane from Minnesota in the United States.
She has more than 25 years’ experience as a Physiotherapist and has worked in a variety of settings, including private Physiotherapy clinics, hospitals, assisted living, outpatient clinics, schools and homes.
During these years, Shelly has evaluated and treated a hugely diverse caseload of patients including those with sports injuries, work/occupational injuries and musculoskeletal injuries and has treated patients with cancer, stroke and those with orthopedic challenges.
Most recently, Shelly worked as a Pediatric Physical Therapist and provided rehabilitative and rehabilitative services to children with chromosomal abnormalities, neurological impairments, torticollis, cerebral palsy and a range of other syndromes and injuries.
She has also worked in multiple Orthopedic clinics treating a variety of diagnoses from spine pain, joint replacements, concussions, sports injury to musculoskeletal injuries. In these roles she was required to communicate with a range of health care professionals to ensure the best outcome for her patients being young, old and everything in between.
Helping people function at their best is one of Shelly’s passions. She is also a strong believer in Clinical Pilates as an effective rehabilitation and fitness tool and will be helping clients with their individual programs at Body Organics.
Shelly enjoys traveling and experiencing different cultures. Along with her husband, Shelly enjoys cooking, especially Thai and Indian food whilst entertaining friends. She is an avid bicyclist and loves to hike, snow or water ski, paddle, and just be outdoors moving.
