Shelley Sloper (nee. Pastuch) graduated from the University of South Australia in 2000 with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy. Shelley worked in country Victoria and South Australia in both the public and private sectors in musculoskeletal physiotherapy.
Shelley then moved to the UK for 18 months working in the NHS, focusing on musculoskeletal conditions in a variety of exceptional hospitals gaining experience in orthopaedic and trauma physiotherapy.
On her return to Australia in 2003 Shelley moved to Perth and commenced work in the private sector. During this time she furthered her training and education completing pilates training, dry-needling, taping and shoulder courses.
In 2006 Shelley established Miami Physiotherapy in Falcon and made Mandurah her home. She completed her Masters through the University of Queensland, graduating in 2007.
She has continued to further her physiotherapy skills with additional courses including kinesio taping, Real Time Ultrasound guided exercise training, ViMove Assessments of the lower back, chronic pain management, balance and falls prevention and enjoys keeping up with the newest evidenced practice literature.
In 2013 Shelley commenced the design process for the new purpose built Miami Physiotherapy building. The building was completed mid 2015 and Miami Physiotherapy moved into its new home!
An opportunity presented itself in 2017 and Shelley opened a clinic in a second location – Lakelands. The growth of the 2 clinics has required a change in focus for Shelley, with management and leadership of her team now the focus of her attention. This has allowed her to guide the growth of the physios, massage therapists and front of staff personnel in order to provide the best service possible for the community.
Shelley continues to be passionate about health, particularly maintaining health in the older adult which has driven the addition of services aimed at improving and maintaining quality of life for the older community.
In her non-work life, Shelley has a family with 3 children which keeps her busy. She enjoys being outdoors – camping, walking and being around the water. She loves to bake yummy treats and finds knitting helps in the pursuit of mindfulness.
