I strongly endorse that exercise is not a fad, it is medicine and it is for everyone. We make a lot of sacrifices in life, but health and wellbeing should never be one of them. I really enjoy taking the time to find the right exercise fit for you and your goals.
As an Exercise Oncology Specialist, Caitlin is passionate about the benefits of exercise as a critical part of the treatment plan for those with a cancer diagnosis. After completing her bachelor’s degree in Clinical Exercise Physiology at the Queensland University of Technology, Caitlin commenced a postgraduate degree in Exercise Medicine (Oncology) at Edith Cowan University to gain specialist knowledge.
Caitlin is passionate about working with cancer patients and their oncology team through all stages of the cancer journey utilising evidence-based, exercise therapy to optimise treatment, reduce and manage treatment side effects, reduce risk of recurrence or secondary cancer, and improve overall health and wellbeing. Caitlin aspires to ensure that all cancer patients are informed about the overwhelming benefits regardless of their cancer type or stage, and have the opportunity to access these services to take control of their health through exercise.
Caitlin also has a talent and interest in women’s health, mental health, rehabilitation and has additional qualifications in reformer Pilates and strength & conditioning. Outside of her clinical practice, exercise is a big part of Caitlin’s life and where possible she likes to combine it with a post-exercise coffee. She also loves spending time with her family on their farm in northern New South Wales and catching up with friends.
