Our Team at Life Ready Busselton

Renee McRae
Physiotherapist

When she was watching the Australian Open at just 10 years old, Renee saw a player being assisted by someone. She asked her Dad who that was person was and what they did. Her passion for physiotherapy started then and there, and the rest they say, is history!

After completing her Bachelor of Physiotherapy and Bachelor of Exercise and Sports Science from the University of Notre Dame in 2015, Renee has worked extensively in private practice physiotherapy.

“I love being able to educate clients in the simplest of ways. [As physiotherapists], the knowledge we have is more than we realise. To educate clients to understand their condition or lifestyle and to empower them to choose better options, or change their lifestyle to help themselves is really powerful – and the favourite part of my job.”

Renee has completed further clinical training in dry needling, Clinical Pilates, tendinopathies and lumbar spine conditions, and is currently pursing further study into women’s health physiotherapy.

Renee enjoys treating all ages and musculoskeletal injuries and disorders such as ankle injuries, neck pain, back pain and postural conditions, though particularly loves working with children and pre/post natal women with pelvic pain and pregnancy-related issues as she feels it is a neglected part of life for women.

Outside of work, Renee enjoys travelling to beautiful countries, keeping active outside (especially near or on the water) and getting stuck into a good book.

Kaleb Barbetti
Physiotherapist

Having a sporting background and undergoing injury rehabilitation sparked Kaleb’s interest to pursue physiotherapy as a career in his younger years. Since graduating from at Curtin University in 2018, Kaleb has worked exclusively in private practice physiotherapy and has developed a keen interest in a wide range of musculoskeletal injuries and disorders. He particularly enjoys treating patients with low back pain, cervicogenic headaches, assisting with ACL rehabilitation and any sports related injuries.

“I love being able to go beyond a client’s expectation of physiotherapy and not only address their immediate problem, but explore other aspects of their lifestyle and find parts they would like to improve.”

In addition to private practice work, Kaleb has worked with several sporting clubs in Perth implementing acute injury management, game day treatment and injury rehabilitation programs.

He has completed further training in dry needling and is always looking to expand his clinical knowledge and refine his physiotherapy skills.

Away from the treatment table, Kaleb enjoys playing basketball and squash and loves any ocean related activity.

Ashlyn Pope
Physiotherapist

Since completing her physiotherapy degree at Curtin University in 2009, Ashlyn has gained experience in a variety of areas within private practice in Perth and in London. In 2010 she completed a year long Clinical Pilates program which gave her the expertise to teach both mat and equipment based Clinical Pilates. She has also completed additional courses in spinal manual therapy, dry needling and running analysis.

Ashlyn enjoys working in all areas of musculoskeletal physiotherapy although she has a strong interest in exercise rehabilitation. She enjoys the challenge of creating patient- specific rehabilitation programs to assist clients in returning to their given sport or hobby, whether that be gardening, skiing, kayaking or lawn bowls!

Ashlyn also has a keen interest in working closely with women through pregnancy and the post-partum period. She is currently studying her Masters in Continence and Women’s Health at Curtin University.

In her spare time Ashlyn enjoys surfing, yoga, swimming, running and travelling the world.

Emma Yates
Remedial Massage Therapist

Emma completed her studies for remedial massage therapy in the United Kingdom back in 2010 and after moving to Australia in 2014, completed RPL for the Australian Diploma in Remedial Massage.

“I became a massage therapist because I knew I wanted to help people, I just wasn’t sure how exactly! I thought I wanted to be a school teacher to help children begin their path in life, however after incurring a work related injury, I was recommended to have remedial massage treatment. I had never had a massage before and could not believe how much it helped me. I became very interested in how the body works and I realised that this was my way of helping people, to help them feel better and to get them on a path to a better quality of life.”

Since graduating, Emma has worked mostly within a physiotherapy environment and has developed a keen interest in a wide range of musculoskeletal injuries and disorders. She particularly enjoys treating clients suffering from neck, shoulder and back pain and helping pre and post natal mums and mums-to-be.

She loves being about to help people feel better – whether that’s from a pain level, or a movement level, or a positivity level.

“There is nothing more rewarding than seeing that your treatment is helping someone and they are reaping the benefits of a specialised treatment plan.”

Outside of work, Emma loves being outdoors, travelling and making healthy treats!
