Liz has extensive clinical experience in the areas of health, fitness, exercise physiology, adapted physical activity and physiotherapy having worked in both the public and private health sectors in Australia and the UK over the last 15 years. Her special areas of interest are the application of physical activity in the treatment of pain, the influence of body movement on brain development and function in children and adults, and the role of physical activity in healthy aging. Liz has been involved in the development and delivery of tertiary level clinical exercise education including practical and theoretical examinations since 2005. Subject content has included the role of physical activity in health and disease, health promotion, anthropometry, field and clinical fitness testing, strength and conditioning, and pathophysiology, assessment and management of a number of clinical domains (musculoskeletal conditions, neurological disorders, metabolic diseases and exercise oncology).

In 2018 Liz led the redevelopment of EXSC382 and development of EXSC342 in the School of Science and Technology here at UNE in line with the updated NUCAP requirements. Liz has moved into the Clinical Placement Educator role for 2019 while Larissa Lye is on maternity leave.
