Kylie enjoys working with people of all ages who want to prevent or manage chronic health conditions. She specialises in exercise and wellness programmes for diabetes, respiratory and cardiovascular related conditions, cancer recovery, chronic pain, autoimmune conditions and neurological disabilities.

Her Masters thesis examined the contributions of muscular strength, disease severity and physical activity on the aerobic capacity of people living with chronic respiratory disease.

In her spare time, Kylie will be found chasing after her very energetic toddler.
