Juliette has over 25 years’ experience as a physiotherapist. In the early 2000’s she commenced using walking poles with her older clients and those with chronic illnesses to improve their fitness and strength. After realizing that walking with poles was the perfect solution to many people suffering from pain and disability who struggled to find suitable exercise, she undertook her PhD in the health benefits of walking poles for older adults at the University of Queensland.
Following this, she became a Master trainer with Urban Poling, thus combining her love of community physiotherapy with her passion for Urban Poling. She has taught several Urban Poling workshops around the country and leads Urban Poling walking and exercise groups in the Brisbane area.
