Heidi studied Veterinary Medicine at Murdoch University, Perth, graduating in 1998. Working in veterinary practice she felt having drugs and surgery as the primary tools were fairly limiting, and the ability to actually fix the cause of her patients’ diseases was restricted.
She then studied animal chiropractic at RMIT, where she says a whole new world of treatment opened up. She subsequently studied veterinary acupuncture, craniosacral therapy, saddle fit and homotoxicology. Heidi combines all this experience and knowledge in her treatments to help her patients achieve good health, be pain free and reach their maximum potential.
Heidi operated her practice, Brigadoon Veterinary Chiropractic, in Victoria and southern NSW until the end of 2011. She then moved to Queensland and now practices in the central Queensland region, operating in Rockhampton and surrounds.
For several years she lectured and tutored part time for RMIT with the Post Graduate Animal Chiropractic Diploma. She has conducted many talks to various riding and pony clubs on veterinary chiropractic issues and the sport of horse packing. She has also given speeches at various functions including The Sydney Institute in May 2012.
