Tell us about your background in Physiotherapy.
I started my career in Physiotherapy as a keen learner in on-field sports setting; which gave me a jumpstart in handling and covering sports events for badminton and basketball. I also worked as a physiotherapist in a sports clinic, where I gained in-depth experience on proper assessment, designing, as well as on executing treatment plans. I am well knowledgeable not just with sports-related injuries but moreover about orthopedic and musculoskeletal cases.
What are your interests?
During my spare time, I enjoy reading books, travelling, and taking photos. Books tickle my imagination; bringing me to different places and time, giving me a glimpse of what might be. I love being outdoors; traveling and photography make me appreciate not just the beauty of the destination but also the stories behind it. These are the things that keep my work and personal life in a balanced state.
Tell us about a life-changing experience or adventures you’ve been on.
It would definitely be the first time I tried surfing! Encountering something new, something you have not done before is always frightening, yet surfing taught me that fear is normal. Getting on the board, popping then paddling back again after a wipe-out and staying above the waves made me realized that surfing is just similar to living— always a learning curve, a constant cycle.
What is your area of expertise?
Sports related injuries, musculoskeletal and post-operative cases
What is the most fulfilling part of the job?
It is being a part of a mutually beneficial experience; as I help my patients regain or go back to their previous status, I also want to learn/grow from them and improve myself as a clinician. It’s not always about giving; it is also about learning from the experience. Just making a difference in someone’s life is more than just a reward! It is always worth it! It may sound cliché, but that’s the truth.
