About Us

Experienced Physiotherapists, Fresh Environment, Latest Equipment


Olivia Collicoat - M.Physio + B. ExSc

I’m yet another home-grown, central Victorian local to join the Inform Physio Care family!

Growing up in a small country town, I played every and any sports I could get my hands on that the town could offer – Netball, Basketball and tournament water skiing. My love for sport fuelled an interest in how the body works leading to pursuing a career in physiotherapy. My background in Exercise Science and high level water skiing has developed my passion in ensuring that we can function at our highest possible level.

My absolute professional love is being able to help people achieve their goals, whether you’re a weekend warrior or an avid competitor. 



Since graduating from Exercise Science at LaTrobe Bendigo in 2016, I continued my studies at LaTrobe Bundoora, where and graduated with a Masters of Physiotherapy. Since then, gaining 5 years plus of clinical experience in a wide variety of Physiotherapy streams, including orthopaedic acute and post op care. 

I took my career to Melbourne at Cabrini Health, later holding a Senior Role providing rehabilitation services to patients within their home environment, predominantly after orthopaedic surgery, but also to the elderly, helping them to provide reconditioning after an acute illness. 


Key interests:


Working with people who are really missing out on what they enjoy the most is what I live for – I’ll hustle with you to get you back to your best ASAP! We’ll work together to knock down the hurdles to getting you back on track. 

My main special interest area is working with people following orthopaedic surgery, i.e. total knee or hip replacement, or acute injuries from sport. 

I’m always continuing to improve my skills and knowledge and all things Physio so that you can benefit, as a patient, from the latest treatment options and techniques. 



I’m your typical adrenaline junkie and love my extreme sports/activities. During summer you will find me out on the river training for my tournament water skiing, which I’m a National level Athlete. Otherwise, you can find me at the gym or mountain biking. During winter I love to hit the slopes and go snowboarding, with Thredbo being my mountain of choice in Australia, but Mt Hotham in Victoria. 

I enjoy being at home though with my Miniature Dachshund, Hamish, for some down time and cooking a lovely meal, or baking a lemon meringue pie – I’m also a keen renovator for our beautiful home here in Bendigo! 


Scott Stringer - M.Physio + B. ExSc

I am stoked to be able to join the awesome team here at Inform Physio Care and be the first Bendigo home grown local! 

Having grown up playing AFL football and Basketball here in Bendigo and abroad, I have developed a passion for people on the field / court. I pursued my interest in Strength and Conditioning by studying an Exercise Science Degree and Strength and Conditioning. I love to keep people active and strong throughout their life for as long as possible – keeping you doing what you love to do best! 

I studied both my Exercise Science degree and Physiotherapy degree here in Bendigo with a brief stint exploring what the USA had to offer for a young Bendigo man.


I have 4 years of undergraduate experience in Physio areas both in the hospital and in private practice, being able to meet an amazing amount of people of all walks of life. 

I’m grateful to have worked as a strength coach for 5 years now, being able to carry out my passion for getting people strong in preparation for their sport AND life.

Key Interests:


I have a keen interest in all thing’s musculoskeletal physiotherapy with a desire to keep learning and providing the best care to all my clients in order for them to kick their goals – there will something new to try at every turn! 

Nothing gets me more excited than seeing my clients kick their goals and live the happiest, most active life they can!

I love working with active individuals with an interest in hitting their gym and maximising their strength, whether it be for sport or for life!


I am very passionate about the gym and challenging myself to become the strongest person I can be both physically and mentally. I am an amateur powerlifter, with the goal of competing more in the future.

I am a HUGE basketball and AFL fan, so when I’m not working you can probably catch me kicking the footy, shooting hoops at the local court or watching my favourite code on the TV.

My favourite AFL team is Richmond and my favourite NBA team is the LA Lakers!


Ebony Gerrish - M.Physio + B. ExSc

Being the third Physio here at Inform Physio Care to have grown up in a rural setting, I have always had a connection to sport which allows me to understand the vital role that sport plays in both rural and regional communities. My massive passion for treating sporting injuries stems from this connection and my own participation in team and solo sports. I studied here in Bendigo at LaTrobe University and we have started setting ourselves up to be Bendigo “locals” with our first house purchase!


Since graduating from La Trobe University Bendigo in 2018, I have worked solely in private practice, managing a heavy sporting and musculoskeletal caseload.

My post graduate education includes:

  • Dry needling
  • DMA Clinical Pilates
  • ASCA Level 1 Strength and Conditioning
  • Level 1 Sports Physiotherapy
  • Level 1 WLS Women’s Health.

Key Interests: 


I am a super keen runner myself! Clinically, I am able to draw on these personal running and injury experiences and I always feel a great sense of joy when I get to help my patients back to the things they love best. If I’m not out running, you might find me at the pool or at the tennis courts.

Outside of working activities, I enjoy cooking up a frenzy of delicious food for my family and friends and I am the proud owner of a beautiful golden retriever who loves to eat anything he can lay his eyes on!


My Physio love is to see people with Running Injuries, keep on the track and stay on the track in a sustainable way. Running is such a passion of mine that I like to see everybody being able to enjoy it as much as I do.

Learning, both professionally and from the simple conversations with the amazing Inform Physio Care patients is something I am lucky enough to do on a daily basis and very much value this opportunity.

Other special interest areas of mine include post-surgical rehabilitation and fracture management.

Anna McLean – B.PHys + MAPA

Also hailing from a rural background, I grew up in Cowra in NSW, developing a keen interest in Physiotherapy in my senior schooling after meeting some cool visiting Physio students! I was accepted into the prestigious Charles Sturt University in Albury, completing my formal university studies at the end of 2014, quickly firing up my Physiotherapy career in the greenest and wettest part of the state in Hamilton! Duncan and I moved to Bendigo in 2016, to be closer to our families and to enjoy the exciting lifestyle, still in touch with a country background that Bendigo provides.


  • I’ve worked through entry level and Senior Clinician roles in multiple areas at our fantastic Bendigo Health Hospital, including Acute Medical Ward and more recently Acute Orthopaedic Ward

  • I worked as a sports trainer at North Albury FNC whilst studying and loved playing a part in the club. I am keen to dive into work with all the local sporting clubs out there and would love to hear from you

  • I have invested consistently in my additional skills particularly taping, dry needling, ACL injury management (surgical and conservative management), exercise prescription and injury prevention

Key Interests:


  • I have a keen interest in helping people with Knee issues, particularly running and jumping sports

  • I also love to see people smashing their goals and getting back to what they want to be doing after surgery either from trauma or planned procedures

  • I love to work with people who are driven by getting the most out of their body from kids to athletes to preventing deterioration as we age


  • I’m a die-hard Melbourne supporter, so you know I’ll be with you through thick and thin

  • You’ll often find me on the hockey pitch playing for North West Lightning and Sandhurst Hockey clubs

Jorden (Jordy) Burke – B.PHys + MAPA

Having graduated with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy degree from Charles Sturt University in 2005, I have amassed in excess of 10 years of rich Physiotherapy experience, almost exclusively in the sports and private practice musculoskeletal field, through having fantastic mentors to guide and shape my practice.

I relished the opportunity to gather VFL football level experience with Bendigo’s VFL side of 2 years, gaining a vast array of specific injury knowledge and treatment options and further understanding of the pressures associated with high level sporting pursuits. He continues to maintain close ties to his network of specialist Physiotherapists, coaches and Sports Physicians. Being heavily involved in BendigoHealth’s Shoulder Pain Assessment Clinic, gave me a rich understanding of shoulder pathology and allowing me to translate this into something meaningful and understandable for his patients.

I enjoy the continual shift in what is best Physiotherapy practice and keep my assessments, management plans and advice up to date by actively following relevant journals and specific experts in the field of Physiotherapy. I love treating and have a special interest in shoulders and running injuries and have developed two thorough assessments from my professional development activities to ensure that you get the results you want.

As a former footballer, but now keen runner, gym enthusiast and water skier, I have definitely had my fair share of injuries and I directly understand through this experience, what is needed to get you back to your best and how major a part of tackling strength has a huge part to play in symptom resolution as well as future bullet-proofing and prevention.

And that makes three of us! I too hail from a small regional centre on the Murray River at Barmah, 30 min from Echuca, on a family-owned dairy/cropping farm. My brothers and I attended primary school in Nathalia and secondary school in Echuca.

My husband Michael and I, with our 3 kids in tow, moved to Bendigo 3 years ago for a change of scenery and recently added a start-up business to the mix in the form of Farm Irrigation, which has also taken off!

During my downtime I enjoy craftwork, reading or Netflix and spending time with my fantastic family. I also play hockey (LOVE Hockey!) with a local Bendigo club (Eaglehawk HC) as well as support our local NorthWest Lightning Hockey team.

I am a qualified massage therapist of 10 years and ran my business from home, which proved handy whilst raising our young family. 

I am really excited to be on board at Inform Physio Care – I’m looking forward to meeting all of you soon and adding to the experience you all know and love!
