Cheryl graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Physiotherapy from Glasgow Caledonian University in 2017, and obtained First Class Honours for her academic excellence. During her time overseas, she began practising Pilates and was certified under the Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute for Clinical Rehabilitation in Matwork, as well as Ante & Post Natal Pilates. Her interest in Women’s Health and Paediatrics was further developed during her time with KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital (KKH), where she started specialising in treatment for children with orthopaedic conditions, such as Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis (AIS).
As a BSPTS Schroth Practitioner, Cheryl is highly passionate in working with people who have scoliosis or spine conditions. She firmly believes in treating the individual, not just the injury, and enjoys journeying with her patients through their rehabilitation process. While leading the scoliosis services in KKH, she helped to launch the post-operative outpatient protocol for patients who have undergone spinal fusion.
Driven by self-improvement, she completed the Matwork and Reformer Pilates teacher training under BodyTree group while being pregnant with her second child! Having experienced how an effective treatment can ease the agony of pelvic girdle pain, she is determined to empower mothers like herself to better manage issues such as peri-natal musculoskeletal pain and incontinence. Cheryl continues her journey in professional development by regularly attending APA Continence and Women’s Health courses to keep up to date with the latest development in the field. She aims to provide holistic care for her patients and normalise pelvic health across population groups.
As an athlete since young, Cheryl relates well to injuries stemming from sports such as Track and Field, Canoe Polo, and Dance. Her treatment strategies advocate for movement longevity to ensure that patients understand the importance of not just a pain-free life, but a lifestyle that adds value to their long-term health.
Out of work, Cheryl lives to eat. She also enjoys hitting the gym with her husband and spending quality time with her two young children. She appreciates a good cup of tea, and occasional spontaneity.
