Dr. Marlee Koopman (Osteopath)

Marlee was first exposed to the benefits of Osteopathy when her father began a treatment program for a chronic back injury. While supporting her dad through treatment, it was clear to Marlee that she wanted to be in the health industry.

She began her journey studying exercise science and on completion she knew the next path was Osteopathy.

During her years of study at RMIT, Marlee worked with Coburg Football Club in the VFL. This allowed her to enhance her skills in the rehabilitation of sporting injuries.

In 2017, Marlee was given the opportunity to participate in an international internship program in India. Here she worked out of orthopaedic hospitals in Mumbai and Goa, further increasing her knowledge of Osteopathy and its many variations for treatment and pain management.

When not in the clinic, Marlee enjoys keeping fit and healthy playing Netball, spending time with her family and friends and dog, Ned.
