Position at Eat Play Thrive

  • Chiropractor
  • Pilates Instructor


  • Bachelor of Applied Science
  • Master of Clinical Science (Chiropractic)


Keira’s chiropractic journey began when she first attended a chiropractor at age 16. Her brother was seeking relief from football related back pain, which was improving with chiropractic adjustments. Keira had no symptoms or issues she was aware of but after receiving adjustments realized she felt better. But if nothing was wrong, how could this be? This sparked an interest in the body, how it worked and how optimal health and function could be achieved.

Keira graduated from RMIT in 2008 and has been in private practice for over 7 years. She spent two of those years working in Canada and now practices in both Malvern East and Gippsland.

Keira uses a wide range of chiropractic techniques including manual adjusting, Sacro-Occipital Technique, Activator Methods Chiropractic Technique, several cranial techniques and Neuro Emotional Technique to name just a few. She is also a Pilates instructor here at Eat Play Thrive.

Keira enjoys working with people of all ages, from newborns right through to the elderly as well as pregnant women.
