Get to know your NDIS exercise physiologist, Adelle Bottrell
We’ve asked our compassionate, thoughtful and deep thinker exercise physiologist, Adelle Bottrell, a couple of questions so that you can get to know her a little better!
Why did you become an exercise physiologist?
It’s the perfect balance of health and sport, two areas in which I am very interested in.
What has led to your passion for disability?
I enjoy assisting people to achieve their goals. I also enjoy being challenged through working with people who have different, unusual and complex reasons for coming to see me; both of which can be found working in disability. It’s also a very rewarding role, when my client’s success is often tied very closely to improvements in their function and independence – something that most people take for granted!
Do you have a memorable experience of assisting a client to achieve their goals that you’d like to share?
I love supporting clients to achieve goals they didn’t think they’d be able to achieve such as completing their local park run or getting in or out of bed without assistance!
What do you like to do in your spare time?
I love exploring new coastal or bush walks around Sydney and spending quality time with family and friends.
What is your favourite sport or physical activity?
I love any form of team sport: basketball, netball, tennis, football – the list goes on!
In another life, if you weren’t an exercise physiologist, what do you think you’d be doing?
I would definitely still be in the health industry – perhaps a physiotherapist, nurse or doctor!
What is one thing that people would be surprised to learn about you? Do you have a hidden talent?
I love spreadsheets and find them so helpful for organisation (work and personal)!
What is your favourite movie, book and holiday?
Movie: Lord of the Rings Trilogy
Book: Harry Potter series
Holiday: I took a recent trip to the Northern Territory with my family – that is going to be pretty hard to top!
