Jess McGrath

Exercise Physiologist

Jess is a local girl who has been working around Corrimal since her very first job at Civic Video back when she was just 14 yrs old (yes they did exist). Little did she know that she would now still be working in that same building which is actually our PhysioHealth gym!

She has been working as an Exercise Physiologist for 7 years and has loved every second of it! Jess is now enjoying helping out with the onboarding and management side of the clinic – learning new skills and being able to educate and teach High School and University students what it takes to be an EP in a private practice. She has a huge passion for showing CanConquer patients what exercise can do for them – physically and mentally.. the outcome is truly incredible. 

When Jess is not in the clinic she is probably out fighting fires (her other job) OR watching true crime docos on netflix. On top of this she has a passion for movement – surprise surprise. She enjoys a well rounded mix of running, swimming, playing tennis and going to our local gym.. HIIT Republic.
