Marissa Chapman • Orthotist

I am an Orthotist at Orthokids. I graduated from Latrobe University in 2016 and joined the Orthokids team soon afterwards, fulfilling my wish to work with children.

Previously a school teacher, I thoroughly enjoy working with children and their families. At our St. Vincent’s Kid’s clinic, I see lots of babies with hip dysplasia, and children with fractures and sports injuries. At this busy clinic, I work collaboratively with Associate Prof Leo Donnan, Mr Brian Loh and physiotherapist Meredith Watson.

I also spend time at Orthokids’ other clinics in Surrey Hills and North Melbourne, seeing a wide variety of children for an assortment of different orthoses.

In my spare time I enjoy pilates, cooking and can give you a hot tip on the best café to visit.
