Tracey's journey to becoming a chiropractor is rooted in her unwavering dedication to healthcare. Before embarking on her chiropractic career, she worked as a registered nurse in the challenging field of cardiothoracic medicine. Witnessing the transformative power of healthcare firsthand, Tracey's passion for helping others and promoting well-being deepened. This profound interest became the driving force behind her decision to transition into chiropractic care, where she could make a direct impact on her patients' lives through a holistic approach. Combining her knowledge of the human body, her nurturing spirit, and her commitment to lifelong learning, Tracey embarked on a path that allowed her to fuse her medical background with the art and science of chiropractic. Today, she continues to shape lives, employing her unique perspective and expertise to provide compassionate, patient-centered care that goes beyond the conventional. Tracey's journey from nurse to chiropractor embodies her unwavering dedication to health and her relentless pursuit of excellence in healthcare.
After completing a Diploma and then Bachelor of Applied Science in Nursing from Monash University, she worked at the Alfred Hospital for a number years.
Following a head injury from a horse riding accident and successful recovery with chiropractic care, Tracey was inspired to expand her horizons and explore alternative approaches to healing. Tracey pursued a dual degree at RMIT, graduating with a Bachelor of Chiropractic Science and a Bachelor of Applied Science in Clinical Science in 1996. This comprehensive education provided her with a solid foundation in chiropractic care, enabling her to blend the art and science of healing in her practice.
To further enhance her expertise, Tracey pursued advanced training in Applied Kinesiology, earning the prestigious status of a board-certified Diplomate in Applied Kinesiology in 2014. Over the course of her career, she has dedicated over 1000 hours to attending professional Applied Kinesiology courses, constantly expanding her knowledge and staying at the forefront of advancements in the field.
Tracey's commitment to professional development and staying connected to the chiropractic community is evident in her longstanding memberships. She has been an active member of the Australian Chiropractors Association for over 25 years. Additionally, she has been a dedicated member of the International Board of Applied Kinesiology for almost two decades, engaging in a global network of professionals dedicated to promoting the highest standards of care.
In 2020, Tracey accomplished a significant milestone in her postgraduate studies by successfully completing a rigorous two-year program in Neurodevelopmental Chiropractic Pediatrics. This specialized training has equipped her with a deep understanding of the unique needs of pediatric patients and has further solidified her expertise in providing comprehensive care for children.
Continuously seeking to expand her knowledge and expertise, Tracey dedicates herself to ongoing education and training each year, focusing on her clinical interests. This commitment ensures that she stays at the forefront of advancements in the field, allowing her to provide the highest level of care to her patients.
At the heart of Tracey's practice is her gentle and precise approach to chiropractic care, with Neuro Impulse Protocol (NIP) being her main technique. Having embraced NIP in its early stages around 2001, Tracey has remained dedicated to its evolution as a neurological approach to chiropractic that encompasses the entire body. NIP offers a non-manipulative, low-force style of adjusting and treatment, which aligns perfectly with Tracey's belief in providing gentle and effective care. She combines NIP with extensive cranial work, applied kinesiology and nutrition to cater to the needs of her patients of all ages.
Tracey's wealth of knowledge extends beyond her chiropractic expertise. Integrating her understanding of pediatrics, biochemistry, and neurology, she delivers comprehensive and personalized patient care. Her passion for pediatrics, pregnancy, and nutritional biochemistry drives her to provide tailored solutions that optimize health and well-being for individuals at every stage of life.
As a passionate advocate for the chiropractic profession, Tracey actively supports both undergraduate and qualified chiropractors through her involvement in various educational programs. Her commitment to empowering learners is reflected in her role as a lecturer, where she imparts informative and practical skills that are easily absorbed, understood, and applicable in real-world clinical settings. Currently, Tracey teaches the Professional Applied Kinesiology (PAK) 100-hour courses and the Neuro Impulse Protocol (NIP) courses in Australia, sharing her expertise with aspiring and experienced practitioners alike.
Tracey's unwavering passion for her chiropractic profession, her commitment to lifelong learning, and her dedication to supporting her colleagues solidify her position as a trusted leader and practitioner in the field. Through her holistic approach and tireless pursuit of excellence, she continues to make a positive impact on the lives of her patients and the chiropractic community as a whole.
In 2022, Tracey launched Clinical Connections. This portal serves as a hub for chiropractors, chiropractic students, and other healthcare professionals to access the training and resources they need to enhance their professional development. These programs aim to unite a wide spectrum of clinical concepts in techniques, diagnostics, nutrition and biochemistry, with hands-on application, empowering practitioners to become more than just technicians in their field.
