Sofie has recently graduated from Macquarie University with a Doctor of Physiotherapy. Before this, she completed an Honours in Psychology at the University of Sydney, including an empirical thesis in Pyscho-oncology. With her multidisciplinary background, Sofie is passionate about providing person-centred care. She strives to ensure that all her patients feel heard, valued, and nurtured throughout their healthcare journey.

As the current Rehab Physiotherapist for the Sydney Swans AFLW team, Sofie has a keen interest in managing sports injuries and niggles, particularly lower limb tendon, ligament, and bone stress injuries. Her previous work in a geriatric rehabilitation hospital has also fostered a love for empowering older clients to remain active and maintain their independence as they age.

Throughout her university career, Sofie undertook research activity for highly renowned, Sydney-based Orthopedic Surgeons. This included authorship of multiple publications in peer-reviewed Orthopedic and Sports Medicine journals. Her research prowess enables her to engage with current literature and ensure that her patients are provided with evidence-based care.

 

When Sofie isn’t in the clinic you can usually find her running, brunching, or beaching with friends and family. She also loves to read and welcomes all book recommendations that come her way!
