Tiana is also crazy for sport; some would even say completely mental based on her love of Collingwood…. But in particular, she enjoys Volleyball and Soccer, both of which she has played for a number of years and acted as Vice-Captain for her teams. Tiana was also heavily involved in the AFL scene down in Melbourne through her work as a sports trainer for the Beaumaris Football Club, gaining a large amount of experience in the world of sports injury management and rehabilitation.
Tiana is arriving in Townsville later this week and is excited to settle in and enjoy our consistent weather and sunshine. She is also particularly keen to go camping and hiking, exploring all that our region has to offer. Thankfully, she isn’t afraid of bugs or wildlife, and we have now dubbed her chief of spider catching in the clinic because the rest of us are horribly useless when it comes to those creepy little buggers (Thanks in advance for your service Tiana!). Tiana also likes to carry a film camera with her wherever she goes, and she’s looking forward to having to spend a fortune on replacement film to capture all the wonderful memories she is no doubt going to make up here in sunny Townsville. Some examples of her incredible photography are shown below!
What Tiana is most excited for is to get started at work here in the clinic where she hopes to bring her wealth of knowledge and experience to empower people and make a meaningful difference in their health journey. Tiana specifically has a great deal of experience with treating patients suffering from chronic migraines, neck, and back pain, and has a particular interest in working with chronic pain in general. She has also had the privilege of working overseas in Goa, India, where she had the opportunity to develop her skills and confidence in working with a wide variety of people and conditions.
If you can’t tell, we are extremely excited to welcome Tiana to our work family and look forward to seeing her blossom as both a health professional, and a soon-to-be converted Queenslander!
