Celia originally hails from Kenya. She completed her 5 year chiropractic degree in Bournemouth, UK graduating in 1993. She completed a post graduate diploma in Sports Chiropractic which saw her treating athletes at the All Africa Games and the White Water Championships in Zimbabwe in 1995. She was part of the first team of chiropractors that were allowed to work at the Olympics in Sydney in 2000.
Having had the privilege of growing up in Kenya, Celia had a yearning to return to Africa where she worked in Cape Town, South Africa for nine years. In 2003, an opportunity arose for her to work in two multi disciplinary sports clinics in Christchurch, New Zealand where she gained further experience in sports injuries working closely alongside sports specialists, physiotherapists and other disciplines, enabling athletes to reach their peak in sports performance.
2006 brought Celia to Melbourne where she has worked in various clinics along the Mornington Peninsula – her last position being held at Living Chiropractic in Aspendale Gardens, where she gained valuable training in the Gonstead method of adjusting.
During my time in South Africa, l competed in ironman events, ultra triathlons, triathlons, marathons and ultra marathons. Whilst l no longer compete, l still enjoy bike riding and mountain biking and swimming to keep me fit, and enjoy looking for adventures that allow me to cycle or swim!
