Robert Ingram

PhysiotherapistRobert Ingram

Robbie was born and spent his early childhood in Zimbabwe, before he moved to Perth with his family in 2008. After completing his secondary education at Hale School, Robbie studied at the University of Notre Dame where he graduated with a double degree in Bachelor of Physiotherapy/Bachelor of Exercise and Sports Science.

He has always lived an active and sporty lifestyle which has led him to a career in Physiotherapy. Having sustained a few rugby-related injuries in the past, Robbie is aware of the impact that a physiotherapist can have in not only returning a patient to their pre-injury level, but exceeding it. Robbie aims to do just that with his friendly nature and his evidenced-based physiotherapy skills and knowledge.

Robbie has spent time working in both acute and chronic hospital settings. He has had experience treating patients in an Intensive Care Unit (ICU), orthopaedic wards, stroke rehabilitation as well as musculoskeletal out-patients in the country town of Collie. Robbie has also tailored multiple exercise programmes for his patients to improve their strength, mobility, speed and fitness. His areas of clinical interest include lower back pain, shoulder injuries, ankle injuries and return to sport programmes.

Robbie currently plays premier grade rugby for Associates Rugby Union Club. Outside of sport, Robbie enjoys spending his time with friends, going to the beach, fishing and relaxing with his family and dog. Robbie has aspirations to complete his Masters of Physiotherapy in the coming years, as well as doing some volunteer work for the organisation called ‘Mercy Ships’, that provide surgery and rehabilitation to people living in extreme poverty.


Sharon Doodkorte


When arriving at Freedom Physiotherapy Bentley you will be greeted with a smile from Sharon. Sharon is originally from Victoria but relocated at the young age of 10 and has called Western Australia her home ever since.

Sharon was a keen hairdresser and has had two successful businesses. She managed and coordinated the daily running of a bakery in Glen Forrest and a Trendy Cafe in the CBD. 

Sharon has just recently become a Nana for the first time, so she loves spending time with her grandson. Sharon is a people person who loves spending time with her family and friends.

In Sharon's spare time she like to read, cook and also enjoys spending time making rugs and cute clothing with her knitting and crocheting skills. Sharon plans to enroll in an art class so she can develop her skills as a painter; specifically in watercolors.

To keep fit Sharon goes for walks or rides but clinical Pilates is her favorite form of exercise. Sharon is an avid traveller and has travelled through Thailand, Malaysia and more recently America. Europe is on her future agenda, hopefully sooner rather than later.


Vicki Beaton


vickiAlthough born in the Western Australian town of Geraldton, Vicki has spent the majority of her life living in Perth, firstly as a boarding student at St Mary’s Church of England Ladies College, then working full time in the Rural & Industries Bank. Of recent years, Vicki has been a partner in a very successful Perth based business selling and distributing companion animal microchips and scanners to vets and implanters throughout Australia.

Vicki enjoys eating out at interesting and varied ethnic restaurants (fuelled by her son’s passion for food, him being a qualified and enthusiastic chef). She has travelled to Germany several times, the UK twice and a variety of South East Asian countries.

In her free time, Vicki enjoys daily walks with her three German Shepherds. Vicki has proudly bred and successfully exhibited all three of her dogs in the specialty show ring on a competitive National level. Vicki has been a committed and heavily involved member of the German Shepherd Dog Club of Western Australia in Southern River for some 27 years. She has received a 25 year service pin for volunteering 25 years of ‘working’ for the Club as a trainer, on various committees and for the past 15 years as the Club Hereditary Diseases Registrar and the Breed Survey Registrar. These positions entail a lot of paperwork and dealing with breeders and owners.  It’s probably no surprise that Vicki’s daughter is a vet.

Thank you Jordan. I am so grateful for what you have done to aid in the rehab of the injury to my ankle. Cannot speak highly enough of your professionalism. Thank you to Sharon for always putting a smile on my face. Treatment and attention was of a very high quality.
