Sarah Bell - Sportsmed NQ Exercise Physiologist

Sarah completed a Bachelor of Applied Science (Human Movement Studies) at RMIT Melbourne in 1995 and commenced her career in orthopaedic, cardiothoracic and spinal post operative rehabilitation assisting the physiotherapy team. Sarah decided to return to her home town of Townsville for the warmer weather, taking a position with WorkCover QLD as a rehabilitation and return to work case manager.

In 2000, Sarah established her own business providing occupational rehabilitation, physical reconditioning, chronic disease management & injury prevention services to clients until 2004. During this period, Sarah’s experience included providing exercise prescription and healh tprevention services for the Mater Hospital within the Cardiac and PTSD units.

Sarah then moved into education and casually taught for a few years in local primary schools before returning to her first love – exercise physiology. Sarah became a member of the SportsMed NQ team in late 2013 and enjoys being able to contribute to such a vibrant and professional group of clinicians. Sarah gets great satisfaction working in preventative health care, knowing that she can assist clients to reach their best with optimal health and wellbeing outcomes.

Sarah has a good family/work life balance and feels blessed to have plenty of quality time with her husband, two boys and friends doing the things they love; such as camping, walking along the strand and just hanging out with no agenda.
