Anna opened Bounce Back osteopathy in 2015, working as a sole trader in Stepney. After seeing her clinic flourish, she found the perfect place to establish Bounce, in a heritage-listed cottage on Magill Road in Norwood.

Anna has always had a passion for educating and mentoring. After mentoring Osteopathic students over the past few years, she now works part time at Endeavour college of Natural Health, as a Contract Academic in the School of Health Sciences/Myotherapy Department.
