I’ve had the pleasure of being a part of the Farrelly Chiropractic family for almost 12 years.
Farrelly Chiropractic is a great place to work. Peter, his family and the associates are very friendly, professional, thorough and approachable.
In the 11 years I have been here, I have witnessed many great things. The most rewarding part of my job is getting to meet with all our existing and new clients, not only having a chat and getting to know them but also knowing we are contributing to their general health and well-being.
I’m a very proud grandmother of 4 wonderful girls. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with them. I also enjoy cycling and walking and getting stuck into a good book.
