sports and exercise physiotherapist
Jess completed her Bachelor of Physiotherapy degree at ACU in 2015 before completing her master of Sport and Exercise Physiotherapy at La Trobe University in 2021. This has enabled her to continue to pursue her goal of working alongside elite sporting teams landing a role in AFL with the Brisbane Lions in 2021. Prior to this she worked with the Brisbane Lions Academy program looking after the U18 Girls in 2018-2019 and U18 Boys in 2019-2020.
Jess currently works as a physiotherapist with both the Brisbane Lions AFL and AFLW teams. She was lucky enough to be a part of the Brisbane Lions Women’s team when they won their first ever premiership in 2021. She has previously worked alongside NPL soccer and high school swimming teams as well.
With her experience in AFL Jess’ favourite areas to treat are ankles, knees, groin and shoulders, however she enjoys the challenge of rehabilitating any injury and working with athletes from different sporting backgrounds. She has a special interest in treating concussion and persistent concussion symptoms, and has completed extensive professional development to extend her knowledge in this area.
