Physiotherapist & Owner

I grew up in Perth, and love staying active through long distance running, getting to the gym, and chasing my daughters around the playground.


I love teaching clients how they can improve their running, through our Running Analysis Service, which is suitable for runners of all levels. I find this is a huge help for clients struggling with long term injuries that they haven't been able to overcome.


Pregnancy is a special time, but so often mums-to-be feel lost and overwhelmed with the information available. Through our free information sessions, a range of classes and our pregnancy-friendly Physiotherapy treatment, I spend a lot of my time looking after women during this special time.


My biggest focus at Aspire is to keep EVERYONE moving (all ages, all fitness levels), as much as each of you can, because you only get one body, and we need to look after it.

Health and Fitness is a huge part of my life, having grown up with my family running a gym in our home town in the Adelaide Hills. This has led me to value health and fitness which is what has driven me to follow it through into my career. 


Graduating in 2016 with a Bachelor of Human Movement, I gained insight into exercise prescription and how keeping active can lead to so many health benefits. This is where I discovered Pilates. I studied Pilates through two different institutions where I learnt Women’s health specific and generic exercise prescription. Since 2015 I’ve been teaching Pilates to a variety of ages and love the benefits that Pilates can offer to everyone individually.


Outside of work, you’ll find me participating in Pilates, yoga and HIIT classes, going to the cinemas way too regularly with my partner or hanging out with my puppy dog Raymond.


My focus as a Physiotherapist is working with people to achieve their goals and encouraging movement along the way to empower self-management and discovering your best body!


Candice has completed a Masters of Physiotherapy through the University of South Australia and has completed training in the following areas:
