Hi, my name is Brianna O’Toole and I graduated with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy from JCU in 2015.
I was fortunate enough to have been accepted for a position as a Physiotherapist with Physionorth commencing the beginning of 2016.
I was very nervous making the transition into the ‘working world’. I had this idea that there would be no support and help like Uni. I was afraid of the unknown. However, at the same time I was eager and excited to start work, to put 4 years of hard work into practice.
2016 came around very quickly! And it turns out I was wrong. I have received more help, encouragement, and support than I ever have before since starting at Physionorth.
over 12 months has gone by and I feel as though I have always been here. The team at physionorth made me feel welcome from day 1. They are approachable, non-judgemental, supportive and encouraging.
My skillset has grown tremendously since working for Physionorth. I consider myself extremely fortunate to be part of a team who strongly believe in continuous education. As a team, we all get together and have Professional Development sessions, as well as one-on-one sessions with senior physiotherapists. Since being introduced to the Thoracic Ring Approach I have learnt an alternative approach to my assessments and treatments which I cannot believe how fortunate I am to have been exposed to. I have become a very confident, enthusiastic and driven physiotherapist which I have Physionorth to thank for.
