Lisa Dempsey, a passionate physiotherapist, was drawn to the field due to her desire to be part of the dynamic health industry and engage in a career filled with variety. With a penchant for conversation, physiotherapy perfectly aligned with her aspirations. While she finds joy in treating musculoskeletal and sports injuries like many of her peers, Lisa has developed a newfound appreciation for pre and post-natal physiotherapy and women’s health.
Highlights of her career include the establishment of FNQ Health Co. and her involvement as a physiotherapist at the GC2018 games in Cairns. Despite her outgoing nature, few may realise that Lisa is the eldest of five siblings, perhaps explaining her affinity for communication. Her favourite place in the world is FNQ, where she finds unparalleled contentment. Lisa’s guilty pleasure involves indulging in cheese, occasionally complemented by wine.
Her favourite quote, “Life begins when you step out of your comfort zone,” reflects her adventurous spirit. If she could embody any animal, she would choose a turtle for their serene reef explorations, inherent protection, and remarkable resilience spanning millions of years.
