Jacqui Profile image

Jacqui Agostinello

Founder and Director, Senior Clinician Physiotherapist

Jacqui is the founder and director of Active Edge Physio Melbourne. She is a neurotrauma specialist and also works as a senior clinician for the Victorian Spinal Cord Service at Austin Health.

Jacqui is passionate about helping people with neuromuscular disorders improve their respiratory health. She has spent her career getting people with complex neuro-respiratory conditions off ventilation, off oxygen and out of hospital. Jacqui loves going the extra mile to discover new ways to improve and maintain lung capacity in this complex and diverse client group. As one of the most loved Melbourne mobile physios specialising in neurotrauma, she loves seeing her clients stay out of hospital, stabilised with less chest infections and getting back to living a life they love.

Jacqui is so invested in minimising respiratory dysfunction occurring in people with neuromuscular disorders. She has conducted clinical research over the years to both learn more herself, but also to expand the knowledge and skills for those working with clients that are struggling with these problems. If you’d like some light bedtime reading, you can check out some of the papers she has written.

Hayley Taylor

Senior Physiotherapist

Hayley is currently on maternity leave.
Hayley is one of our incredible senior physiotherapists at Active Edge Physio.

Working with people using an individualised, holistic approach that focusses on achieving their own meaningful goals is important to Hayley. In particular, she enjoys building relationships, the diversity and also the challenges and rewards of the long term collaborative journey with people living with neurological disorders and their families.
