Polly relocated from sunny Singapore to Melbourne to pursue clinical research in Musculoskeletal Podiatry.
She enjoyed her time during her honours year assessing children with Down Syndrome. After a whirlwind of traveling and working in Singapore, Polly decided to return to La Trobe University seven years later to undertake research in midfoot osteoarthritis. She hopes to translate future research into clinical practice and vice versa.
Growing up doing gymnastics, playing field hockey and now an avid hiker, Polly advocates foot health longevity regardless of sport, activity or age. As a rather active person herself, Polly believes that a client’s ‘wear and tear’ joint condition is no reason to discontinue their favourite activities. She advocates active ageing and hopes to help as many clients get back on their feet to continue the sport they love. She believes in working with a team to provide individualised treatment to her clients. Polly is effectively bilingual in English and Mandarin Chinese, with fair proficiency in her pet dog, Cola’s whining.
When Polly is not helping people to move through life, she enjoys taking longer than usual walks (100km OXFAM, Humpridge trek, Routeburn trek and Annapurna circuit, to name a few). She’s always up for a chat about traveling.
