1.Tell us about your background in Physiotherapy.

I became a qualified physiotherapist in 2006 after graduating from Haute Ecole Catholique Charleroi-Europe in Belgium. Since then I have worked in a variety of physiotherapy settings in private clinics in France. Last year, I also worked in Beijing for nine months as a physiotherapist and store manager at Nordic Health (specializing in neck and back disorders).

I received my post graduate degree in Method Solère (functional rebalancing for joint, energy and visceral normalization  using osteopathic techniques).


2. What are your interests?

I love playing sports such as football, tennis, badminton and running. During the holidays, I often ride my bike, or go paddling or swimming in the ocean.

In my spare time, I enjoy hanging out with my family and my friends and meeting new people from different cultures. I love to go on adventures and discover exciting new things as well!


3. Tell us about a life-changing experience or adventure you’ve been on. 

I had already been to China four times to visit my sister, but only for vacation. A year and a half ago, I moved to Beijing from the west of France to see her and my new nephew who was born in 2015. I decided to stay and try a new experience and find a job as a physiotherapist.


I started to learn Chinese in order to communicate better with people while living here, and at the same time I worked as a substitute sports teacher at the French High School of Beijing. Now I’m so glad to have joined the SPI/ Raffles Medical Clinic Physiotherapy teaming July 2016.


4. What is your area of expertise?

•Musculoskeletal disorders

•Sport injuries

5. What is the most fulfilling part of the job?

Seeing people recover from injury and helping them to take control of their own health. I also like working as part of a team and sharing and learning more knowledge and treatment with my colleagues.
