Caroline studied a Bachelor of Science at the University of Melbourne which she completed in 1999. She then followed her dreams and continued her studies at Victoria University where she began Osteopathy. This involved studying a Bachelor of Science, then the Master of Clinical Science (Osteopathy) which was completed in 2004. During her time at University Caroline was a sports trainer for an amateur football club for 2 years, where she was responsible for first aid, assessment and rehabilitation of injuries. She was also involved in the Victoria University Clinic management committee in 2004.

After graduating Caroline worked in an osteopathic clinic in Melbourne’s bayside region for three years. During this time she was involved in a local soccer club as an Osteopath for the women’s team, continuing her keen interest in sports and sporting injuries. She has been working at the MacFarlane Clinic since September 2007.

Since finishing study she has continued to develop her skills and knowledge by participating in various courses including Osteopathy in the Cranial Field and recently Balanced Ligamentous Tension. These are both gentle manual treatments which allow the tension in the bodies’ tissues and ligaments to return to a normal balanced state. Caroline is a member of the Australian Osteopathic Association.

Caroline has a keen interest in helping people, which was the main drive in her fulfilled dream to become an Osteopath. She has a special interest in neck and back pain, paediatrics / Cranial Osteopathic therapy, sports injuries and the elderly.

Caroline has recently bought a house which she is enjoying with her long-term partner Adrian. She also enjoys swimming, watching sports and walking her dog.
