Sunny Fan graduated from the University of Melbourne with a Master of Nursing Science, New York University Stern School of Business with a Bachelor of Science in Accounting, and Deakin University with a Bachelor of Biomedical Science with Distinction before completing the Doctor of Physiotherapy at the University of Melbourne.
During University Sunny studied a variety of health-related fields including musculoskeletal, neurological, and cardiorespiratory physiotherapy, and human anatomy with a strong emphasis on research and evidenced based clinical practice. She has clinical experience working in neurological physiotherapy rehabilitating individuals with disease, spinal surgery, and stroke recovery. In musculoskeletal physiotherapy, she rehabilitated patients post hip and knee replacements, scarf osteotomy and upper and lower limb fractures.
Sunny developed a passion for hand therapy during her final clinical placement at University. She believes this grew from her interest in upper limb anatomy and seeing the direct impact that hand therapy can have on improving someone’s life.
Sunny particularly enjoyed the research component of her studies, and is passionate about staying up to date with the latest in hand therapy research and developing tailored rehabilitation programs to enable her clients to regain their independence.
Sunny has previously worked in a corporate environment and nursing, where she was successful at delivering person-centered care. She has always been fascinated with health sciences and body movement, and has additional experience as a Sports Trainer managing injuries and coordinating rehabilitation for the Alamein Footy Club, and as a dance Instructor.
Outside of work Sunny enjoys swimming and cheering on her 2 teenagers at their sporting activities. Working at Action Rehab to support people to overcome their upper limb injuries is an amalgamation of her commitment to preventive healthcare, patient advocacy, and continuous learning and research of body function and movements in all walks of life.
