Keri Coxhead – Receptionist
Keri has been a “Tauponian” for about 10 years, after shifting to her husbands hometown to start a family and enjoy a quieter life… well…. not too sure if it is that much more quieter really!
Keri has worked part time on reception for a couple years now, and enjoys meeting and greeting all our wonderful clients, and then seeing all their progress through our amazing physiotherapists. She loves working in such a positive, bustling and thriving environment with an awesome team to match!
When she’s not smiling at the front desk, she supports her husband with their local Building Company, enjoys getting creative with a little bit of Graphic Design work, and also, sometimes you can even see her out and about singing with various bands around the place too!
