Wendy graduated from Cumberland College of Health Sciences in 1986 with a Bachelor of Applied Science (physiotherapy) degree. She worked for many years in the public hospital system gaining experience in treating patients with a wide range of problems including pre and post-surgery, respiratory conditions and acutely ill patients in Intensive Care. In 1996 she completed a Masters in Applied Science degree in cardiopulmonary physiotherapy. During this time she developed an interest in continence issues especially in relation to chronic cough. Later working in Maternity wards at two private hospitals she decided to expand her interests into all aspects of men's and woman's health and undertook post-graduate training at Melbourne University in continence and pelvic floor rehabilitation. Wendy has a particular interest in post-prostatectomy incontinence. A chance meeting with an audiologist looking for a physiotherapist to help patients with balance and dizziness problems lead to training in vestibular rehabilitation. Wendy is passionate about helping people with dizziness and balance problems and has over 15 years experience in this area. Wendy has been working for the past 16 years in private practice. As a partner in Chalmers O'Sullivan Physiotherapy she was able to concentrate on men's and women's health and vestibular rehabilitation.
Wendy is also currently providing pelvic floor rehabilitation and lymphoedema therapy to patients at Chris O'Brien Lifehouse Hospital.

BSc (UNSW), Post Graduate Diploma - Physiotherapy (Cumberland College of Health Sciences)
With 30+ years of working experience as a physiotherapist primarily working in a private practice outpatient setting. Firstly as an employed physiotherapist, then moving on to being a practicing owner of a busy physiotherapy clinic.
In my early years as a physio I was the physiotherapist, at game time and pre and post game, to both a professional Rugby League Team (St George) and Soccer Team (St George Budapest). In over 30 years working as a physio I saw and treated many conditions but my main interest has always been the rehabilitation of knees, shoulders and ankles following injury and/or surgery. After working solely on musculoskeletal issues for about 20 years it became apparent the need to include into my repertoire of further education and treatment skills that of Women's Health issues.
