About Isabelle:
Isabelle started studying naturopathy straight out of high school. In 2007 she graduated from Health Schools Australia with Advanced Diplomas in Functional Nutrition, Naturopathy and Western Herbalism and a Cert IV in Aromatherapy. In 2008 she graduated from Charles Sturt University with a Health Sciences (Complementary Medicine) degree.

While studying at Charles Sturt University, she was accepted into the Golden Key Honour Society and received the Alison Watson Memorial Scholarship through the NSW Arthritis Foundation. Being diagnosed with arthritis at a young age has always had an impact and continues to shape how Isabelle practices.

She is currently enrolled in Master’s by Research at Southern Cross University and has completed 3 research projects that centre around chronic pain. One study used an N-of-1 model to investigate the use of probiotics for osteoarthritic pain and has been published. Another looked at the use of PEA and probiotics for osteoarthritic pain and decreased wellbeing using a multiple baseline design. The final research project was a qualitative study that investigated empowerment in naturopathy for individuals with chronic pain.

When not playing in the world of naturopathy, Isabelle deeply loves music and teaches classical piano, singing and theory for all grades.
