Alice was born and raised in Hull, on the river Humber in Yorkshire (UK). Having a very active lifestyle whilst growing up, both playing sports and climbing Mountains in the Lake District with her family, she decided to become a Physiotherapist so she could help other people stay active too.
Alice graduated from the University of Manchester with a BSc (Honors) degree in Physiotherapy in 2001. After 3 years working in a large NHS teaching hospital in Leeds she decided to explore life “Down Under” moving to Australia in 2004. Based in Mackay, Queensland Alice owned her own successful Physiotherapy Practice for 10 years before selling this in November 2015 to move to Aotearoa New Zealand permanently with her Kiwi husband and young family.
In 2007 Alice decided to undergo basic training in Pelvic Floor and Women's Health Physiotherapy to see what it was all about and immediately knew this was the career pathway for her. Since then, she has had extensive and specific training in this area and is highly experienced in treating women with incontinence, bladder and bowel issues and sexual pain.
Alice is extremely passionate about helping women to move well, live well and achieve their goals in life. She believes that through education and empowerment, bladder, bowel and pelvic pain issues don’t have to be a barrier for women to live their best lives and do what they love doing. Alice’s mission is to improve access to evidence-based physiotherapy treatment for all women in Aotearoa New Zealand for all Pelvic Health conditions.
Alice is a New Zealand registered Physiotherapist with the following professional memberships:
- Physiotherapy New Zealand (PNZ)
- PNZ Pelvic, Women’s and Men’s Special Interest Group
- International Urogynecological Association
- New Zealand Continence Association
- Women Health Training Associates (Australia)
Outside of work Alice loves bringing her kids up in the Bay of Plenty and exploring all the beautiful places it has to offer. In the summer Alice can often be found at the beach hanging out with her family and during the winter months is proud to still be playing in a competitive Women’s Football team in her forties!
