Marama Mitchell

Physiotherapist


Marama joined Newtown Physio, following a year at Taranaki Base Hospital completing her Bachelor in Health Science from the Auckland University of Technology. The hospital training provided Marama with an excellent foundation in all aspects of medical conditions and injuries.

When Marama graduated from AUT at the end of 2011, she was one of four Maori students to graduate that year. Marama was privileged to have a graduation ceremony on the Ngawai O Horotiu Marae located at AUT University. She is from the Rakai Paka tribe, which is a sub tribe of Ngati Kahungunu. Prior to training as a physiotherapist, Marama represented New Zealand in dance and gymnastics.
