Dr Jenny Askwith
Bsc Chiro, B Chiro
Dr Jenny is the director of Fremantle Chiropractic.
I was born in Perth and spent my childhood growing up in the northern suburbs. Once I graduated from school I attended Murdoch University to complete my chiropractic degree. I received a few awards upon graduating, namely the Michelle Wallis Prize in Chiropractic Skills and Technique.
After graduating from Murdoch, I moved to take a job semi-rurally south of Perth where I had been working and living until recently where I have moved back to Perth to Fremantle Chiropractic.
I am currently completing a diploma in Chiropractic Pediatrics and am passionate about advocating care for all family members. I have also enjoyed attending frequent seminars and courses to allow me to diversify and harbour skill in a range of areas.
I believe in a balance of work and play. My passions include anything family, outdoors, cooking and spending time with my loveable hound Humphrey.
Dr Stephanie Brindal
Bsc Chiro, B Chiro
Dr Steph has been a Chiropractor for over 10 years. She studied here at Murdoch University then moved to Sydney where she started her career, practicing on the Northern Beaches supporting the local families and the community for 7 years. She then moved back to Perth in 2019 to join Fremantle Chiropractic. Dr Steph is continuing to love being a part of the South Fremantle community and very much enjoying the lifestyle. Her passions include getting out and enjoying the outdoors, hanging out with her adorable pup Ralph and open water swimming.
Wanting to further expand her knowledge, Dr Steph has done extended education in nutrition, families, pregnancy and paediatrics. These courses have included Pregnancy Care, Total Body Modification Thompson Technique and has recently completed her Diplomate in Chiropractic Paediatrics (DACCP).
In addition to furthering her studies, she has had the privilege of voluntary work with the impoverished communities in Siliguri, India and Manila, Philippines doing health checks, education and providing care to those in the community.
Dr Steph loves seeing people at all their different stages of their lives, who always take a holistic approach to their health to improve their vitality.
Dr Maddison Melrose
Dr Maddi graduated from Murdoch University with a Bachelor of Science (Chiropractic) and Bachelor of Clinical Chiropractic, with distinction. She enjoys connecting with people and assisting the body on its healing journey. In her spare time you’ll find her out in nature or exploring all the dog beaches the coast has to offer with her partner and two Australian shepherds!
Jasminka joined our Fremantle chiropractic family in 2020, after coming from a retail management position.
She wanted to use her customer service skills in an environment where she could make a positive change in a person’s life, through the healthcare industry.
Her favourite part about her job is getting to know people from all walks of life, and building connections with them. She loves talking to people so when you’re in practice don’t hesitate to start up a conversation (if she doesn’t beat you to the punch). Jasminka is very close to her family and partner Carmelo, and they enjoy spending time together around the dinner table or going for a good walk. When she’s not in the practice, Jasminka also spends time on her fashion label Zanetta, where she uses her creative talents to design and manufacture women’s clothing.
We Commonly call her Mink, so please feel free to use this nickname!
Melissa recently joined our Fremantle Chiropractic family and comes from mainly a hospitality management background.
Originally from Wellington in New Zealand, Melissa moved to Perth over ten years ago ‘for a look’ and fell in love with WA and the Fremantle lifestyle. She has since married a local and has two energetic young boys. Her happy place is spending time with friends and family down at the river or beach, or at home cooking yummy food.
With her background in customer service and passion for the health industry, this was the ideal role for her to thrive in and enjoy whilst maintaining a healthy work/life balance. She loves getting to know everyone and their families, so make sure you say hi.
