Ben graduated from Edith Cowen University in 2018 with a Bachelor of Science (Exercise & Sports Science) before going on to graduate from the University of Western Australia with a Master of Clinical Exercise Physiology in 2020.

After playing years of competitive basketball, Ben sustained musculoskeletal injuries along with four shoulder reconstructions each requiring months of rehabilitation.

Ben’s personal experience with musculoskeletal rehabilitation helps him understand each individual client, and the delivery of client-centred care to help each person strive for their goals. Areas of interest for rehabilitation include musculoskeletal injuries, mental health management, cardiovascular conditions, and management of chronic illness or disease, particularly Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus, osteoporosis, cancer, and more.
