Get to know your therapist – Lenia
I am simple lady who likes to do water sports, spend time with family and friends, and of course, loves shopping ( which lady doesn’t, right?). I must add this, I also love my mum’s cooking- her mee siam and curry chicken are to die for. That is the reason why my mum is slim but the rest of her family members are so cute and chubby.
I am a sporty person by nature and I enjoy spending my time swimming, running and playing badminton. I also enjoy working ( believe it or not, it is the air that I breathe) and physiotherapy, in particular learning new information and techniques as they intrigue me.When I am away from the clinics, I usually spend my spare time chilling with my family, especially now that my hubby is back in Singapore. We usually spend time exercising and having coffee time together. We also love watching crime genre TV series such as Criminal minds, Suits and a local channel 5 show called The best I could which is based on Singapore’s own criminal lawyer, Subhas Anandan.
What inspired you to become a physiotherapist?
Since young, I have always aspired to be a healthcare worker because I like interacting with others and watching them recover and get better. My journey as a physiotherapist began when I was 18 and received a brochure from Physiotherapy in Singapore. I thought to myself, that might be the pathway most suited to my passion and personality.
What do you enjoy the most about your job?
I love to see my clients get better and stay better with the help of physiotherapy. Their progression from when they first stepped in to the clinic is worth every effort from the team. Being able to interact with different groups of people also allows me to understand more of their needs and interests. Meeting different people from all walks of life also gives me to opportunity to learn new things every single day and that is always something I am looking forward to.Apart from great clients, I am also thankful for understanding and motivating bosses as well as enthusiastic and helpful colleagues which make my job so much more fun and enjoyable.
