Ms. Jacky Lipson

Jacky (she/her) is a research assistant and physiotherapist from Boon Wurrung Country, now living in on Wurundjeri land. Jacky is passionate about enhancing the health and wellbeing of all children and young people with disabilities. She has worked as a paediatric physiotherapist in community and hospital settings in Australia and the UK and feels incredibly privileged to work so closely with children and their families, both in times of joy – when achieving goals and also in times of need.

Jacky is driven by the desire for a more equal and inclusive world, where all children with disabilities, regardless of their background have equal opportunities and rights. She completed her Masters in Global Health and Development in 2019 and commenced a Global Health Fellowship in early 2020. Since returning to Australia, she has been working as a Research Assistant at the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute, where she enjoys being involved in the many diverse and impactful projects of the Healthy Trajectories Hub. In particular, Jacky loves collaborating with and learning from her colleagues.

Jacky loves camping and exploring the great outdoors, and when not at work can often be found with her nose in a good book – ideally by a body of water.
