Meet Paediatric Exercise Physiologist Nikita O’Brien

Nikita O’Brien

Paediatric Exercise Physiologist
Hydrotherapy Team Leader

Nikita was raised in a small country town where exercise and sport always played a big role in her life. This encouraged her to become an Exercise Physiologist with a passion for assisting people with ​chronic conditions to improve their function and quality of life.

Nikita completed a Bachelor of Exercise Science and Masters of Exercise Physiology at La Trobe University Bendigo. During her university degree Nikita had the opportunity to work with children at The Bendigo Academy of Sport which developed her passion for paediatrics and was only further fostered while working as an AustSwim teacher. Nikita is our Hydrotherapy Team Leader at Ocean Kids and loves spending time in the pool to help children achieve their goals!

Nikita enjoys playing netball, tennis, going to the gym, camping and hiking.


Why? I am good at working in team environments and can see a situation from all perspectives.

Our Ocean Kids Health team are here to help you and your child thrive!
