Juliann is a Physiotherapist from Canada who completed her Master of Physiotherapy at the University of Sydney. She has an extensive background in competitive sport. She was a multi-sport university athlete competing on the varsity rowing and athletics teams. After lifeguarding for several years, she became involved in Surf Lifesaving and represented Canada in international competition for surf ski and ironman events. Her background in water sports has facilitated a smooth transition to the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney, which she now calls home. Juliann is an active member of the Bondi Bathers SLSC and continues to train in swimming, paddleboard, and surf ski events. She also enjoys participating in events such as ocean swims, swim-runs, and harbour kayak races.
