Madi is an APA titled Sports and Exercise Physiotherapist who completed her undergraduate degree at Monash University in Victoria (2012) and her Masters in Sports Physiotherapy at Curtin University (2018). She has spent time working with several different sporting teams; most recently Madi undertook the physiotherapist position for the Australian Under 18 Junior Aussie Spirit Softball team (2020 – present), as well as the head physiotherapist for the WA State Under 18s Women’s AFL program/team (2016-2019).

Madi is a highly motivated physiotherapist who enjoys assisting both high level athletes and weekend warriors to achieve their goals through injury management/rehabilitation. She has a special interest in knee and shoulder injuries; particularly pre and post op ACL management and rotator cuff related injuries. Whilst having successfully treated many post-operative ACL patients, Madi’s own personal experience through this injury allows her to empathise with patients and provide great insight into what is required for a successful return to sport/function. Recently working more with overhead athletes Madi has a keen eye for shoulder impairments and enjoys the challenges that a multi-directional joint like the shoulder provides.
Madi firmly believes that a strong strength and conditioning foundation is key for individuals of all fitness levels and enjoys and enjoys engaging patients through this process to empower them on their rehabilitation journey. She will be undertaking her level 1 strength and conditioning with ASCA later this year.
Working closely with other professionals in the health and fitness domain, Madi has also grown a keen interest in running related injuries as well as running mechanics and programming. Currently she herself is training for a half marathon and also plays WAFLW for the East Fremantle Sharks.
