Belle completed her Bachelor of Physiotherapy at the University of Canberra, taking a keen interest in sports and musculoskeletal physiotherapy. During her time as a student, she gained experience working with sporting teams such as the U19's Brumbies, local rugby union teams and Canberra United Soccer. She was also working in private practice within the Canberra region before joining the Southside team in early 2021.

Belle's special interests in physiotherapy revolve around sporting injuries, pre and post-operative rehabilitation, taping, manual therapies, dry needling, exercise/classes and neurological conditions. More specifically injuries involving the neck, lower back, shoulder, knee and ankle joints.

As well as +Neuro – an individualised exercise class for people with neurological conditions such as; Parkinson's Disease, Stroke and Multiple Sclerosis.
