Physiotherapist Cirque du Soleil
Roisin, a sports Physiotherapist, is the Head of the Performance Medicine team on the Cirque du Soleil touring show, OVO.
Coming from a sporting background herself, having represented Ireland in judo at youth and senior level and going on to play inter-provincial rugby in Ireland and Australia, Roisin has always been fascinated by the limitless capabilities of the human body and mind. This took her to pursue an undergraduate degree in Sport & Exercise at the University of Limerick after which she went on to embark on a physiotherapy career in her second home of Australia. In 2013 she was appointed Head Physiotherapist to the Australian Women’s rugby team and toured with the team to the Women’s’ Rugby World Cup in Paris in 2014. The combination of travel and working in a high performance environment was a dream prospect for Roisin and seeking a new challenge, she took on a position with Cirque du Soleil in early 2016 and has since been touring with OVO in Canada, US and Europe.
