Jessie graduated from University College Dublin in Ireland in 2015. She worked in a private clinic for over two years where she gained experience in treating all types of injuries, neurological conditions and vestibular disorders. Jessie then moved to an acute hospital environment for nearly four years in a variety of settings including vestibular/neurology, oncology, orthopaedics, surgical and medical.
Jessie has a keen interest in sport and enjoys teaching pilates. She has also provided physiotherapy cover for her local sports teams, charity events, marathons and ultra-cycling races.
While Jessie enjoys working with a variety of conditions, she has a particular interest and has completed further training in the areas of concussion, vestibular and other neurological disorders.
Having only recently moved to New Zealand Jessie is looking forward to exploring the country, meeting new people and maybe some triathlon/adventure racing.

This is different to providing massage alone. Certified Lymphoedema therapists are trained to assess the body site that has the issue and to identify other factors that may be contributing to your lymphoedema. This includes incorporating self-management strategies such as exercise, skin care, and what type of compression would best suit the affected area, we can also refer to nutritionists and counsellors to help you regain control and make lifestyle changes. We assist you in preventing and managing exacerbations, along with communicating with the other members of your health care team, including your GP, nurse specialist, oncologist, and surgeon to ensure your treatment is both safe and effective.
