Dan Willis


Originally from a small country town outside of Wagga Wagga, Dan comes from a grain and livestock farm. He has now been in Wollongong since 2018 where he completed a Bachelor of Exercise Science at Wollongong University and then completed his Masters of Physiotherapy at Sydney University.

Dan has always loved sport since he was a kid with his personal favorite being AFL. He grew a passion for physiotherapy at a young age due to going through 3 ACL reconstructions all before he was 17. You won’t find him playing AFL now but Dan has a passion for being outdoors and staying active.
