Andrea is a physiotherapist with vast experience in therapy and rehabilitation. Following her graduation from NYP and Curtin University of Technology in 1995 and 1998 respectively, Andrea spent 8 years with Gleneagles Hospital and Mount Elizabeth Hospital under the Parkway Group where she had the opportunity to gain a wide and varied interest in outpatient rehabilitation of back/neck pain, arthroscopic surgeries, degenerative joint conditions and her key subinterest - neurogeriatric rehabilitation. While with Parkway, Andrea had the opportunity to lead a multidisciplinary team in several falls prevention and screening programs in the heartlands.
In 2003, wanting a wider perspective of the healthcare system and exposure to a more varied patient group and diagnosis, Andrea moved onto Tan Tock Seng Hospital where she spent 5 years, rotating in the outpatient department, inpatient orthopaedics and neurogeriatrics rehabilitation.
Andrea is passionate about prevention and self-management and believes that is the key to achieving the best rehabilitation outcomes. As such, she spends considerable time in patient education, talking to patients about ergonomics and the necessary lifestyle modifications for their conditions.
Prior to private practice, Andrea was the Rehab and Homecare Manager of Gleneagles Hospital, Singapore.
