Whit­sun­days at­tract in­ter­state pro­fes­sion­als

Whitsunday Times - - LIFE -

THE scenic Whit­sun­days area has attracted two new health pro­fes­sion­als all the way from West­ern Aus­tralia.

Mov­ing Along Phys­io­ther­apy in Can­non­vale wel­comed phys­io­ther­a­pist cou­ple Daniel Hug and Mon­ica Pley­dell-Bou­verie to their team just over a month ago.

The pair met while on place­ment in a Nepalese ortho­pe­dic hos­pi­tal four years ago and af­ter work­ing in WA de­cided to ex­pand their hori­zons by ex­plor­ing more of Aus­tralia.

Ms Pley­dell-Bou­verie, who has come from three years work­ing in a tertiary hos­pi­tal in Mur­doch, said the cou­ple jumped at the chance to live and work in the Whit­sun­days.

“It’s a beau­ti­ful place to live, we love the ocean, div­ing, fish­ing and I per­son­ally love mud crabs,” she said.

Mr Hug and Ms Pley­dell-Bou­verie live and work in Can­non­vale and travel al­ter­nately to Bowen one day a week.

“We do get ev­ery sec­ond Fri­day off to­gether to go ex­plor­ing,” Ms Pley­dell-Bou­verie said.

“We are yet to get out to the is­lands but so far we have found the place just mag­i­cal.”

Ms Pley­dell-Bou­verie’s par­ents are both doc­tors and she was in­spired to help other peo­ple down a sim­i­lar path by fo­cus­ing on aid­ing re­cov­ery and man­ag­ing con­di­tions.

“If I had a mes­sage for the com­mu­nity, it would be get mov­ing and keep ac­tive,” she said.
