Nicole dances to the beat of physiotherapy feat
A history of music theatre and dance inspired Nicole to seek an educational pathway to better treat people who succumb to the rigours of those disciplines.
The Bachelor of Physiotherapy graduate aspires to become a physiotherapist for the WA Ballet Company, with the ultimate goal of starting her own practice.
Nicole says she was drawn to Notre Dame for its personalised learning environment and extensive practicum opportunities – including those that took her to a school in the small gold mining town of Mt Magnet.
“Notre Dame is very well rounded – not just academic. It makes you more employable and helps you understand what your dreams are,” Nicole said.
One of the features of the Notre Dame experience, according to Nicole, was the Core Curriculum. Through dedicated units in Philosophy, Theology and Ethics, Nicole said she was able to gain greater understanding on how her decisions could affect the lives of others.
“The best part of the Core Curriculum was that it was tailored to the health disciplines. Philosophy makes you think about life differently and critically; Theology allowed me to explore diverse cultural beliefs which has been beneficial for me in my career,” Nicole said.
