Welcome Linh Le-Kavanagh to the Perron Institute Clinic
The Perron Institute Clinic has recently welcomed Linh Le-Kavanagh in the role of MS Base Coordinator/Clinical Trials Assessor.
Linh has replaced Claire Tucak, who is now the senior physiotherapist in the Restorative Neurology Research group at the Perron Institute.
For over 18 years, Linh has worked as a physiotherapist in clinical and management roles across both the public and private health sectors. Her main area of expertise is in stroke and neurological rehabilitation, including Parkinson’s and spinal cord injury.
Linh enjoys being an educator and tutors third and fourth-year students at Curtin University in the areas of neurology and gerontology. She has completed a Diploma of Management and is currently completing a specialisation in Neurological Physiotherapy with the Australian Physiotherapy Association.
At her previous post at the Joondalup Health Campus, Linh worked as a senior physiotherapist and developed and ran the outpatient rehabilitation program for stroke patients.
Her prior experience in musculoskeletal physiotherapy further supports her role in managing neuromuscular conditions and all aspects of outpatient rehabilitation.
Linh is excited to further her career in the field of neurology at the Perron Institute Clinic.
“I’m passionate about translational research and the delivery of evidence-based care in neurological physiotherapy,” Linh said.
“I worked at the MS Society (now MSWA) as a support worker/therapy assistant during my uni days some 20 years ago.
“It’s so nice to reconnect with the MS community and see the exciting advancement in research and treatment.”
In her personal time, Linh enjoys cooking, keeping fit and running after her two young sons.
