Faces Around the Club: Physios
An introduction to our trainers for 2016 (whom, in a way, we hope to see as little of as possible), most of whom in turn are having an introduction to Australian Rules Football, with four of the five hailing from North America.
Amber is our Head Trainer and is from Philadelphia, USA via New Zealand. She is a Certified Athletic Trainer and is also studying second year Doctor of Physiotherapy at Melbourne Uni.
AFL team supported: undecided.
Dahra is from California and is currently undertaking the second year of the Doctor of Physiotherapy course at Melbourne Uni.
AFL Club supported: She was foolishly thinking about supporting the Dogs (although we can think of much worse) when it comes to AFL (she saw them in their admittedly very good Round 1 performance), but we think we might be making progress in getting her to back the Mighty Cats. We have been advised she “is almost fully converted to support Geelong with her acquiring an OGs coloured beanie to match the Cats.” (Editorial comment: A triumph for common sense and for our Marketing Department.)
Kelvin is also studying second year Doctor of Physiotherapy at Melbourne University. He hails from Vancouver in Canada.
AFL Club supported: Richmond Tigers, “chosen in a panic, pressured from his classmates to pick a team upon touchdown in Melb.” Well not much to get excited about there, although it will mean he gets on very well with Firsts’ Coach Jon Knight.
Beth is from Adelaide and is also doing second year Doctor of Physio at Melbourne Uni, and no great surprise to learn that she supports the Adelaide Crows.
Nathalie is from California, and is in her third year as a Doctor of Physiotherapy student at Melbourne Uni. She is a certified Athletic Trainer from the States.
AFL team supported: supports Carlton Blues (editorial comment: OMG)
