Amali qualified as a Physiotherapist in 2012 from Auckland University of Technology in New Zealand. Soon after graduating, she relocated to Australia and traveled across the country, working across a broad range of clinical settings in both public and private sectors.
Amali has a strong passion for implementing evidence based practice to support and empower her clients to achieve their goals and best possible functional outcomes. She has a special interest in multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s disease and is the clinical lead for the multiple sclerosis clinical programs at ARC. Amali is involved in the development of the MS Online Program, which enables ARC to provide innovative ways to deliver a high quality service via telehealth for those who live remotely or have difficulty accessing rehabilitation services in person. She is also a certified PD Warrior instructor and shares the clinical lead role for motor neuron disease services at ARC. Furthermore, Amali is certified LEXO clinician, a robotic gait training device which has opened up many exciting possibilities for clients with walking goals.
Outside of work, she enjoys spending quality time with her family and friends, exploring the beautiful outdoors and learning the fine art of not over-watering her indoor plants!
Amali works at ARC on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays and in the community team on Wednesdays and Thursdays.
