Among a cohort of students graduating from the University of Canberra in April, stood former Trinity Catholic College student Claire Stutchbury.
Ms Stutchbury was one of 39 students to graduate with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy at the Australian Institute of Sport last month.
She worked locally whilst studying and commuted between Goulburn and Canberra to complete her degree.
She said the degree allowed her to experience a variety of clinical settings, including placements in Moruya, Canberra, Orange and Randwick.
“I have a keen interest in pursuing physiotherapy since high school, having partaken in a variety of local sports including basketball, netball, swimming and aquathon,” the former Trinity student said.
Currently a graduate at the McNamara Physiotherapy Clinic, she said she was happy she was able to work locally.
