I found chiropractic by accident!

As a primary school student I was academically average and my parents were concerned about what they were going to do with me. Deep inside I knew that I was smart, it just wasn’t coming out in school.

Then something magical happened. My marks improved at school also.

I was Dux of Human Biology in year 11 and 12 and had excellent grades in all other subjects. I had always been interested in how the human body worked and although I was initially keen to be a pilot, some gentle suggestion from my mother had me enrolled in Melbourne to start chiropractic, one of only two students accepted straight out of high school from Western Australia. To do this I had to move from the west coast to the east coast of the country.

After Graduating

On graduating from the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology University in 1993, I moved back to Perth, Western Australia and worked as an associate for three years with the chiropractor that had helped me in high school.

I then worked as an associate for another chiropractor, and in 1999 I purchased this Leeming practice and have continued to practice there to this day.

My Family Are My Inspiration

In 1999 I married my wife Kate and we have been blessed with three boys Christian, Mitchell and James. They have all experienced the benefits of a chiropractic lifestyle for their whole lives.With the birth of my first child in 2000 my interest in chiropractic for children heightened. I wanted the best chiropractic care for my children and I wanted to be the one looking after them. It was at this time I decided to pursue post graduate studies in Paediatric Chiropractic.


I have served my profession for 6 years on the State Chiropractors’ Association of Australia, Western Australia Executive, starting as treasurer and then serving two terms as Western Australia State President. I received the Chiropractor of the Year in 2008. I decided to stand down as State President in 2008 to move into the next stage of my chiropractic life. I am a professional mentor and coach for other chiropractors around the world. I continue to practice four days per week, and have expanded my team with another excellent chiropractor.

Many people are unaware that there are many different approaches and techniques that a chiropractor can use. I have a huge interest in continuing education and attend many seminars and conferences each year to keep up to date. This means that I have many varied techniques that I use, and I can tailor the technique to the patient. My personal chiropractic philosophy is to use the least amount of force to get the job done. This is often very reassuring to patients and they are often surprised at how gentle chiropractic can be.

“To be truly healthy there are many factors that need to be considered”

I personally work hard at keeping optimum health. Good diet, adequate rest, positive mental attitude, lots of water, and regular exercise are all part of this program. The key part for me is keeping a healthy nervous system, which is critical in keeping everything working at optimum levels. To do this I have been checked regularly by a chiropractor since I was in primary school. My whole family also makes this part of our total wellness plan.
