Hi, my name is Ed and I work in the exercise rehabilitation team at Absolute Balance Exercise Physiology Group. After graduating University in 2012, I started my career providing health solutions on various mining camps in the Pilbara on a FIFO basis. Having known my passion for rehabilitation, I left the mining industry and have now been a part of the Absolute Balance family for close to three years. In that time, I have experienced the vast variety of work our industry has to offer, including managing our corporate facilities, injury prevention and providing rehabilitation for patients within the compensable system.
I grew up playing footy and whilst those times have passed me by and I enter my twilight years; it still remains a passion of mine. Despite living near, and attending both high school and University in Fremantle, I remain firmly in the West Coast Eagles camp. I have no doubt that years of sport have led me into the great career I am experiencing now. Looking back on my early years, I was excited to attend the University of Notre Dame and Sports Science was a natural choice. After three years, it was evident I wanted to specialise in Exercise Physiology and so completed my fourth-year post-grad.
Working as an allied health professional means working in an ever-changing landscape, particularly now as we try to remain socially isolated. As companies remain flexible and pivot the way they practice, it is an exciting time to be an Exercise Physiologist. Our days are dynamic and empowering those to help themselves is rewarding. Having experienced mental and physical injuries like so many others, I understand the importance of a balanced lifestyle and the many positive impacts exercise can have.
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with friends and family, keeping physically active and travelling. The biggest joy in my life, however, is my daughter whom is growing up all too quickly. She loves to dance, so I plan on fostering her passion for motion by guiding her to remain active whilst treating her body and mind well. It seems that being an AEP permeates into both my professional and personal life.
