Jane is a lymphoedema physiotherapist who worked at Mercy Health Lymphoedema Services for more than 12 years, more recently as the Senior Clinician, seeing men, women and children with both primary and secondary lymphedema.

She contributes to both state and national lymphoedema professional associations, having been on the Australasian Lymphology Association’s Council as State Representative and Knowledge Development Portfolio Manager (2008- 2014).

 An interest in primary lymphoedema and treatment of lymphoedema in children has led to developing research skills, first at James Cook University, and more recently enrolling in PhD studies at Flinders University, to study age-related dermal change in primary lymphoedema and its effect in management. Jane has presented at both national and international lymphology conferences.
