Inspiring, empowering, and coaching you to reach your full potential.
I’m Kellie, a self-confessed sports addict, science nerd, lover of distance running, triathlons, and boxing (yes, I have done an amateur fight) – and basically any other sport that involves a tough challenge! For as long as I can remember, sport has been my passion, and to work as a sport science practitioner at the elite level was my dream from a young age. So, I set off on the path to make my dream a reality and – voilà! – here we are…
It all started for me at the world-renowned Queensland Academy of Sport, where I provided performance support to Olympic, World and Commonwealth champions and world record holders in swimming, diving, rowing and triathlon through the Beijing 2008 and London 2012 Olympic Games cycles. This was an amazing environment to apply my skills working with the best, at the level of excellence.
Having been born and raised in Brisbane, I felt that the end of the Olympic cycle in 2012 was the perfect time to spread my wings and take on a new challenge. I accepted the role as Sport Science Manager at the Swiss Federal Institute of Sport, where I developed a sport science and medicine department for their high performance training centre. I also provided performance support to the Swiss Swimming team in preparation for Olympic, World and European competitions through the Rio 2016 Olympic cycle. Oh, and most importantly, this is where I learnt to ski, snow shoe, mountain run, cycle up alps, speak Italian, and indulge my love of Italian food!
After a decade of working in the international high-performance sport system, I had a desire to use my knowledge and experience to benefit a broader range of people, so I joined an exclusive European start-up company in the area of epigenetics. Through my role in research and development, it became clear that there were great benefits to be had by athletes in combining the principles of optimal health with those of optimal performance.
So, I launched DrKellieRose to bring my scientific knowledge and skills from elite sport and combine them with the principles of optimal health, to enable athletes to achieve performance success while living a healthy life.
Now it is my mission to inspire, empower and coach you to your full potential!
