We asked Gena some questions to get to know her better. Read on below…..

Why did you choose to become a Sports and Exercise Physiotherapist?

I enjoy helping people get back to their daily activities, hobbies and sports. It’s a great feeling to get to know a patient and help them achieve their performance goals in life.

What do you love about working at Newport Physio and Health?

The team here is great and supportive! I especially love the fact that we have the Dr’s and Pharmacy next door as well as Pilates at Flawless Studios and UBX Gym which creates a healthy lifestyle vibe at Newport Marketplace and encourages a multidiscipilanary team approach to patient care.

Tell us about a couple of your hobbies?

Most of my time outside of work is spent with my 1 year old daughter Billie. When I have time I love to play Tennis, attend Yoga and Pilates and go for long walks and to the gym.

What is a funny story that not many people would know about you?

I have been known to treat patients in my sleep. One time my partner Victor woke up to me dry-needling his leg – with my invisible needles of course!
