After spending many years working in private practice physiotherapy in Melbourne, Allyson moved to the Northern Territory where she spent 18 months working as a remote physiotherapist in East Arnhem Land. 

It is because of her time and experience in these communities that Allyson's interest and love of working in Aboriginal health grew. Allyson is Project Officer on both the Aboriginal Birth Cohort (ABC) study and the Top End Cohort (TEC) study, as part of the Life Course Studies team.
