About Bernie Williams
Bernie obtained his Bachelor of Exercise Physiology (Clinical) from James Cook University in Townsville in December 2019. He moved to Kalgoorlie from Queensland in January 2020 to work in the goldfields.
Bernie grew up on a cattle station 150km from Cunnamulla in South-West Queensland. He attended high school in Toowoomba, prior to moving to Townsville to complete his university education.
Throughout his university degree in Exercise Physiology, Bernie successfully completed clinical placements in Townsville, Mount Isa, and Rockhampton which provided him a diverse skill set to start his career. Upon completing his degree, Bernie moved to Kalgoorlie to pursue regional work and provide a health service not ordinarily available in regional locations. Goldfields Physio is very excited for Bernie to be developing Exercise Physiology services for the community.
