She is a registered physiotherapist, having obtained her PhD in public health and community medicine from UNSW Sydney in 2016. She has over 10 years of falls-prevention and ageing research experience, including management of both local and international multidisciplinary projects. She recently completed her post-doc in Germany, which included coordinating the German clinical site of a large multi-centre European wide intervention trial (PreventIT).
