Our People - Sum of Us

Chris Jellis

Director and Physiotherapist

I believe that people need to be given the right tools, education and leadership to take control of their health. I teach people how movement should feel and offer a holistic framework to address their needs. With a specialty in biomechanical assessment and diagnosis, I treat everyone from the elite sportsperson to the local retirement village. Everyone is welcome at Sum Of Us and we hope to see you in the clinic soon!

Kasey Todd

Meditation Teacher

A school teacher who fell in love with meditation by accident 8 years ago. Propelled by living with ease, love and happiness in all areas of being, allowing those I encounter to do the same. For me, meditation & mindfulness is a way of life, and not just a practice. Something that can be learnt by anyone ready to learn - but mostly significantly and unique to my teaching style, taught with a smile, laughter and a bucket load of warmth.

I believe that movement should feel beautiful! I use my clinical expertise in injury management, biomechanical assessment, and rehabilitation with a strong Pilates focus to create optimal, beautiful movement. I want you to feel the same desire and love I feel for movement, and carry that on in your own health and wellness journey.
I am passionate about Women’s Health Physiotherapy and helping women through pregnancy, the post-partum period, and progressing through motherhood with all the new challenges and fun an extra mini-you will bring!

Olivia Morrison


I believe in approaching nutrition holistically. Everyone has a relationship with food – it can be your best friend, your worst enemy or maybe a bit of both. But what’s important to remember is that good nutrition is so much more than what you read on the scales; it comes in all shapes and sizes and is essential for all bodily systems to function optimally for a lifetime. I want everyone to feel happy and comfortable in their own skin, and am passionate about empowering individuals to make positive, sustainable dietary changes by understanding food and nutrition, getting back to basics by incorporating mindful eating techniques and decoding health fads.

Kirsty Richardson


Kirsty is a qualified Naturopath who is passionate about helping people across all stages of life and
and health.
Trained in using evidence based herbal and nutritional medicine she can offer a unique
treatment that is tailored to the individual and their needs. Alongside herbs and nutrients a large
part of the treatment also focuses on diet and lifestyle advice, as sometimes this is the key to making
the biggest difference.
Kirsty was drawn to Naturopathy as she strongly believes that when treating a person you need to
understand all aspects of their life to try to understand what got them to where they are and what is
contributing to their condition. Part of this is looking at treating the cause and not just the symptom.
Kirsty is also a strong advocate in educating patients about their health so that they can feel
empowered to make real changes.
While Kirsty has a particular interest in digestive health and female hormones, she is trained in
helping in a range of conditions for children, women and men.
