Beginning our day with a stretch, we visited physiotherapy graduate and the founder and owner of Forge West End, Dijana Radojevic (Bachelor of Physiotherapy '12). After graduating from UQ, Dijana spent time in London working with the Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute, which combined physiotherapy and pilates services.
