Administration, management and accounts for Fizzio for life.


Jo Gilbert


Our big picture thinker, project manager, team overseer and organiser of things, Jo has over 10 years of experience in running the Fizzio For Life clinic. Always busy, with a cheeky twinkle in her eye, Jo has us laughing (a lot), while simultaneously managing the business to a tee. 

A problem-solver and critical-thinker, Jo loves achieving successful outcomes. And when she talks about success? She’s referring to persistence, not brains. Empathetic in her approach, Jo is driven by positive feedback about our team and service. She also loves connecting with patients and forming long-term relationships.

If Jo had to choose between being granted one wish or a neverending pack of tim-tams, she’d take the wish and find herself boating in the ocean with her husband and dog. Creative at heart, Jo knows her way around a ukulele (just!), is the master of dad jokes, can pull together a sentence in Mandarin and has completed half of her PhD.

Having experienced many broken bones, and most recently a broken ankle as well as serious deep vein thrombosis, Jo understands how it feels to be in chronic pain. Always focusing on the positives, Jo manages her pain with appropriate rest and exercise, self-care and by following medical advice.


Mickayla Brauer


Caring and friendly, Mickayla is your first port of call if you have a question about your treatment. Ensuring that our team is consistently providing high quality care, Mickayla’s number one priority is to ensure our patients are happy. 

Always checking in to ensure each patient enjoys a stellar experience, Mickayla cares deeply about our patients’ outcomes. Working closely with our NDIS patients, she is extremely compassionate and supportive.

Playing an invaluable role within the clinic, Mickayla is adept in time management and possesses Marie Kondo-like organisational skills (truth!). Methodical in ensuring that each NDIS patient’s paperwork is up-to-date, Mickayla also gains immense satisfaction out of the knowledge that our team has helped make a significant difference to patients’ lives.

If Mickayla owned a teleporter, in a click of her fingers she’d be on the beach with her dogs, no questions asked. She loves to travel (anywhere and everywhere), enjoys wakeboarding and delights in visiting her family up north. As a child, Mikayla dreamt of being a bank teller, believing they got to keep all the money people gave them (if only!).

Always here to help, Mickayla will liaise with your therapist, GP or third-party case officer, ensuring you have access to the entirety of services that will progress your care.


Adam Gilbert

Adam Gilbert

Adam has been part of the Fizzio For Life team for over six years. Intuitive and resourceful, Adam manages our bookkeeping and payroll. He also liaises with our patients, assists front desk and takes care of our diary management.

Applying his exceptional planning and problem-solving skills, Adam is motivated by the team he works with (we may have paid him to say that), the flexibility of his role, and of course, cake (a common theme here at Fizzio For Life).

If Adam could double blink and be anywhere in the world at this very moment, it would be Milford Sound in New Zealand. And the first must-do on his bucket list? Is to cage-dive with sharks.

In his downtime, Adam loves to relax at home with his family and always tries to start his day with an iced latte on his way to work. Exceptionally good at trivia games, Adam believes his ‘useless’ knowledge may be borderline concerning. But on a serious note, he’d love to live out his childhood dream and get back to playing the drums.

Having worked at a desk for many years, Adam understands the strain this can place on people’s shoulders and back, and consistently performs a range of exercises to help improve his posture. 

Adam is currently studying his Bachelor of Business, with a major in Human Resource Management.


Alyse Cleaver

Friendly, kind and always positive, Alyse greets our patients as they arrive at the clinic. Making you feel instantly welcome, Alyse is our resident ‘glass half full’ team member (yes, everyone needs an Alyse). 

A busy bee, you’ll also find Alyse booking patient appointments, answering phones, faxing and ensuring our reception area is perfectly tidy (she has a Mrs Doubtfire passion for cleaning). Getting to know each and every one of our patients, Alyse loves seeing them progress in their treatment and improve their quality of life. 

With a background in nursing, disability services and aged care, Alyse is a nurturer at heart. She’s also a talented saxophonist and can touch her nose with her tongue (this is a gift). On weekends, you’ll find Alyse in the garden and hanging with her husband and two boys. If she could be anywhere (other than work) right now, she’d be sailing the Whitsundays on a yacht. And top of her bucket list? Owning a pet monkey!

Leading an active lifestyle, Alyse understands how an injury can make us realise that we take many things for granted. The queen of positivity, she lives with no regrets and always keeps on keeping on. 

Alyse holds a Cert 4 in Allied Health Services, Cert 3 in Aged Care, Cert 3 in Home and Community Care, a Cert 3 in Disability Services and is a qualified swim teacher.
