Cathy is an experienced Oral Health Therapist and Myofunctional Therapist (Australian Academy of Orofacial Myology) who has had a lifelong passion for physiological and holistic health improvement and a proven track record of health improvement advocacy in dental and allied health fields. She is also a trained breathing re educator-and, has completed courses specific to TMJ dysfunction and has been offering OMT to her clients via telehealth for the past 4 years. Her ability to engage, encourage, and educate her clients and their families is demonstrated in the health improvement outcomes her clients continue to experience.
Cathy experienced airway restrictions, tonsil, and adenoid surgery, open mouth breathing and orthodontic treatment as a youngster and the effects were further encountered during her athletic ‘career’ as a cross-country runner, basketball player, and coach. She understands the interplay between the form and function of oral/facial/airway consideration and the health benefits that can be achieved with early or timely intervention where necessary.
Cathy has a passion for self-education/professional development which is supported by her philosophy that ‘one can never stop learning! She is currently the vice president of the Australian Association of Orofacial Myology, hosts a podcast called ‘Beyond Brushing-Optimised Oral Health Outcomes’, and loves nothing more than hanging with her friends, family and especially her gorgeous grandchildren!
