Johanna graduated from Sydney University in 2003 with a Bachelor degree in Physiotherapy. Following this, she spent 7 years working as a musculoskeletal physiotherapist and pilates instructor in private practices and hospitals in Australia, New Zealand and the UK. Johanna began to pursue her interest in hand therapy in 2010 and joined Hands On shortly after. After completing her Post Graduate Diploma in 2012, including the Hand and Upper Limb paper and the Western Acupuncture module, Johanna received her full hand therapist registration in 2013.

A recent change of country, saw Johanna spend two years working within a Sydney hospital Hand Unit, before returning to NZ shores.

Outside of work, Johanna is kept busy keeping up with her sons and a passion for renovating. Johanna has keen interest post operative splinting and rehabilitation of hand injuries. Hands On Rehab were delighted to welcome Johanna back into the team at our Akoranga clinic in February 2019.
