BHSc (Physiotherapy)

Kristen graduated from AUT in 2004, working at Middlemore Hospital where she found a love of Burns and Plastics and Hand Therapy. Moving to London in 2006, she continued working in the field and completed her British Association of Hand Therapy accreditation. Returning home to New Zealand in 2014, she also gained the New Zealand equivalent.

Kristen has a passion for multi trauma injuries and tendon rehabilitation, having spent a lot of her time in the UK working in London’s busy trauma hospitals.

In her spare time Kristen enjoys travelling, running and spending time with her husband and two young children.

Our Westgate clinic are excited to have Kristen join the team in February 2019.
