Alison is an Australian Physiotherapy Association titled Continence and Women’s Health Physiotherapist, and the founding director and principal physiotherapist at Hillview Physiotherapy in Midland.
Alison was awarded a Bachelor of Science in Physiotherapy from Curtin University in 2000, and very early on in her career developed an interest in, and passion for, the field of women’s health physiotherapy. Alison was fortunate to obtain a position working in one of Perth’s major private maternity hospitals in 2004, where she gained a wealth of experience in the inpatient, outpatient and hydrotherapy settings, working alongside and learning from nursing, medical and allied health colleagues.. and importantly, from her patients. Alison’s passion for this field fuelled her desire to learn and to specialise, and she progressed to a senior physiotherapist position in women’s men’s and pelvic health, whilst undertaking postgraduate study. In 2009 Alison was awarded top student in the Curtin University Graduate Certificate in Continence and Women’s Health, and in 2010 after completing her clinical research into postpartum lumbopelvic pain, Alison was awarded a Master of Clinical Physiotherapy in Continence and Women’s Health. In 2010 Alison made the decision to move her work closer to her home in the beautiful Perth Hills, and founded Hillview Physiotherapy, in Midland. Since that time, and following the birth of her children, Alison has continued to build a strong and passionate team of pelvic health and paediatric physiotherapists at Hillview Physiotherapy, a unique practice servicing women, men and children of all ages, which has a reputation for excellence in physiotherapy and patient care.
Alison considers herself a lifelong learner - she is never bored, loves her work more as the years go by, and when not involved in physiotherapy activities she enjoys running, and jumping on the trampoline with her kids.
