Mikala Dean - Occupational Therapist at Evexia

Occupational Therapist

One of the passionate and dedicated owners of Evexia! I moved to the Gold Coast from Tasmania when I finished year 12 to study a Bachelor of Occupational Therapy where I developed my love for helping people to live quality and fulfilling lives. Towards the end of university, I found a keen interest for CrossFit and discovered the core values aligned with Occupational Therapy, helping individuals thrive through independence, movement, and community.

Over the past 10 years I have worked with children, the elderly, people with disabilities and people with sustained injuries with a keen interest in pain free movement that results in greater quality of life in chosen occupations/activities of daily living. Over the years I have increased my knowledge in Soft tissue therapies, dry needling, cupping and functional movements for rehabilitation to assist individuals.

After 4 years of working with a range of individuals in the hospital, private and nursing home environments, there was a vision to create a space where all individuals would have the opportunity to learn to move pain free to increase their quality of life. This is where Evexia came to life, putting our ideas together with Brie!

In my spare time you will find me training at Evexia, spending time with my family and friends whilst soaking up the beautiful beaches of the Gold Coast and surrounds.
