Mersha spent time at Active+ Papakura as a student and returns to us in 2016 after graduating from AUT School of Physiotherapy in 2015. She is eager to pursue her passion as a Musculoskeletal physiotherapist and looks forward to getting her career started. While studying at AUT she experienced a range of physiotherapy disciplines from cardio-respiratory work, stroke rehabilitation and musculoskeletal injury rehabilitation. Previously a PE teacher, Mersha enjoys teaching people how to manage their own bodies and is a firm believer in prevention. She loves a challenge and with the combination of her hands on skills and positive attitude will help you to achieve all your goals, no matter how challenging.
