Hi, my name is Anne, and I am one of the new Peer and Family Support workers in WA. My story is, I sustained a C6 C7 incomplete SCI while out training on my road bike for my first 1/2 Ironman Triathlon at the age of 50. I have always been an exercise addict, so it was an interesting process going from, being a busy mum of 3 and busy husband and training 4-5 days a week, to a wheel chair lifestyle. My motto was to remain as Physically active as possible and if you don’t use it, you will lose it. So, Neuromoves became a big part of my daily activities.
I am really enjoying being part of the SCIA family and if anyone is looking to come and stay in Perth, our CHOICES house is waiting for you.
