Rochelle grew up in country Victoria and moved to Melbourne to study at La Trobe University, graduating with a Bachelor of Health Science & Masters of Physiotherapy Practice.
Rochelle is a keen middle distance runner, and experienced quite a lot of success
as a junior 800m runner, the highlight of this being a silver medal winning performance at the 2011 Commonwealth Youth Games. This involvement in sport led to a number of first hand experiences of injury, and consequently, Rochelle developed a keen interest in injury rehabilitation and prevention.
Rochelle has a particular interest in treating lower limb conditions and has completed additional study in managing hip and groin injuries, lower limb tendinopathy and muscle injury management. She is currently in the process of completing her Masters of Exercise Science (Strength and Conditioning) through Edith Cowan University.
