After suffering a major knee injury as a teenager, which required surgery and extensive rehabilitation, Shannon had an incredible physiotherapist who enabled her to return to full function and resume performing as a dancer. This inspired her to pursue physiotherapy as a career, which has allowed her to make a huge difference and improve the quality of life for her own clients. Her past injury allows her to sympathise and understand what her clients are experiencing on a physical and mental level.
Growing up in the south of Perth, Shannon attended the University of Notre Dame and graduated with a double degree in Physiotherapy and Exercise and Sports Science.
She has an avid interest in all musculoskeletal and sports related injuries, which has encouraged her love for human movement, rehabilitation and pushing athletic limits. She enjoys utilising her knowledge from both degrees, ensuring client treatment is both specific and goal orientated – whilst having a good laugh along the way!
Having danced her entire life, when she’s not in clinic, you’ll find Shannon at the studio both taking and teaching classes, or playing ice hockey, spending time with her dog or jet-setting off to somewhere spectacular.

James has a keen interest in back and neck pain and also the more “complex” clients. “Complex clients make you think a bit harder and require more energy to deal with, and the treatment approach can often vary in many ways. However trying it may be, the reward at the end is great.”
Outside of his work at Life Ready Physio Cockburn, James enjoys hiking, rock climbing, soccer, badminton, working out (calisthenics) and music.

Eliza’s desire to choose a career in physiotherapy was a familiar one – her grandfather was a physiotherapist and when he passed away there was no longer a physiotherapist in the family so she thought it was her role to fill that void. When she started sport training for the East Fremantle Football Club she found a passion for rehabilitating long term injuries in sport (ACLs, leg fractures and recurrent shoulder dislocations) as well as being fascinated by concussions. This fuelled her for the rest of her degree to aim towards becoming a sports physiotherapist.
“I am passionate about helping people realise their weaknesses and help them find strategies to turn them into strengths.”
She completed her studies at the University of Notre Dame, graduating in 2018.
She has a keen interest in sport related injuries and working with motivated athletes and being part of the team. She is fascinated by long term injuries including ACLs, leg fractures, shoulder dislocations and concussions that still seem to have varying return to sport success rates despite vigorous research.
Eliza is an equestrian and competes in eventing/dressage events all over Western Australia on her Off-the-Track racehorse. She also enjoys sport training for the West Coast Eagles, spending time with her family and friends and her dog, Oreo and being involved in her local church.
