Tania Willey graduated from Charles Sturt University, Albury, in 2003 and moved to Melbourne to start her career as an Occupational. Her first 2 ½ years of OT were spent working in both paediatric private practice and The Epworth Hospital inpatient rehab (multi-trauma ward). She also worked casually at the Alfred Hospital and Casey hospital’s Emergency Departments. She moved to Southern Health in 2006 to work in a Community Rehab Centre where she continues to work part time.
She has a broad range of clinical OT experience within a community setting and enjoys working with clients in their own environments to maximise their quality of life. In 2007, following her love of fitness and healthy living, she became a qualified instructor in Pilates and various other group fitness programs. Tania continues to pursue her love of group fitness and Pilates by teaching in many local gyms. She looks forwards to bringing Pilates to Active One as an additional service in the future. Tania lives with her husband who is a MICA paramedic in the Mornington Peninsula area. Together, they have two daughters, Ella and Maddison. She enjoys spending time with her family, running, paddle boarding and camping. She completed the Oxfam 100km run in 2014 and 2015 and now settles for slightly less Km’s in her regular runs.
