Laura graduated from a Masters of Physiotherapy from the University of Sydney in 2014, and has worked as a Physiotherapist across the state in both adult and children’s hospitals. She has worked at Sydney Children’s Hospital since 2019 in a variety of different areas across the network. She has a particular interest in helping children and young adults participate in exercise and physical activity throughout all stages of cancer treatment, and incorporating each individual child’s interests into treatment and rehabilitation. In her spare time you will find her searching for snow to ski, or playing soccer.
Lynn Jensen is a physiotherapist who has worked exclusively in paediatrics since 1985. She has breadth and depth of clinical experience having worked in tertiary and community care, a 20 year tenure as a lecturer at Curtin University and extensive experience as a researcher. A particular interest in physical activity and its benefits to children’s physical, mental and social development enabled her to contribute to a multidisciplinary group that designed the “Animal Fun” program for pre-primary children. She has worked with parents in Karratha to design a physical literacy program for children attending community playgroups (“Building Active Bodies and Brains”). Lynn is very excited to be able to offer physical activity opportunities for children receiving treatment for acute lymphoblastic leukemia at Perth Children’s Hospital.
