It is a huge honour to be included in this fantastic article on young Aussie's doing some incredible things in their lives. Below is an excerpt from The Cusp's article. Please...
Friday afternoons in clinic call for lots of green tea! Love my job as an #Osteopath helping others! As a side note to all my wonderful patients in case I've forgotten to tell you I will be away for all of March with cycling so if you would like some treatment you have 2 weeks left otherwise please see one of our other lovely Osteos! ❤ #health #wellbeing #osteopathy #malvern
Ever wondered what it's like on the back of the #tandem with NO control of what the #bike is doing? Here's a little #POV from our training tonight... now just imagine the footage as a giant blur & you're closer to seeing what I #see... basically not much. Haha! Special cameo @maddiejanssen's back! 😅 #MJtandem #Cycling #trackcycling @cyclingaustralia @cyclingvictoria @ausparalympics
