Abstract

Helen has had a long held interest in sport since her schoolgirl days at Wairarapa College. Her sporting career has spanned some twenty years, first representing New Zealand in hockey between 1986 and 1988, and then representing New Zealand in rugby, playing fourteen test matches for the Black Ferns from 1990 to 1996.
In 1991 Helen captained the Black Ferns team on the hallowed ground of Cardiff Arms Park, Wales. Her contribution to women’s rugby culminated in her being awarded the University of Otago’s ‘Sportsperson of the Year’ in October 1995. She then took on a new role as rugby coach for the Otago Women’s Rugby team after gaining a coaching Diploma at Massey University. Not long after, she graduated with a Master’s degree in Manipulative Therapy from the School of Physiotherapy, University of Otago.
Since then Helen’s career as a sports physiotherapist has flourished. She was appointed as the physiotherapist for the New Zealand Women’s Rugby World Cup in 1997 and was a team physiotherapist for the Commonwealth Games in 2006 and 2010. Helen was also a member of physiotherapy/medical support team attending the Beijing Olympics in 2008 and the London Olympics in 2012.
