Hi my name is Lisa Seiler and I have just completed a double degree in Human Movement / Nutrition & Dietetics at Queensland University of Technology. Currently I am doing voluntary hours here at Fitnance to achieve the required total amount of working with the apparently healthy population so I can get accredited with Exercise & Sport Science Australia (ESSA). I have finished all my other practical placements where I worked with clients who had spinal cord injuries, back pain and other musculoskeletal conditions. My latest prac was at a cardiac rehabilitation centre which I really enjoyed. Taking blood pressures while patients were rowing or walking on the treadmill was definitely a challenge and I believe a useful skill. In terms of my career, I can see myself working as an exercise physiologist or dietitian (or both) in a multi-disciplinary team where a holistic approach to health and well-being is valued. I would also love to combine the knowledge and skills gained in both degrees and work with children to achieve a healthier and more energetic young population.
As far as my hobbies are concerned, I’ve done ballet, jazz, Latin and ballroom dancing, figure-skating, kickboxing, and Tae kwon do in the past. These days I usually go to the gym for a workout. In my free time I enjoy inline-skating, going for walks outside, and reading.
