Meet Amanda – Our Amazing Administration Officer. For those who I haven’t had the pleasure of meeting yet, I am Amanda. Newcastle born and bred, I joined the Kaden Team in January 2019.

I have a beautiful 13yr old daughter who shares my passion for living life to the fullest. Family and friends are very important to me and I like nothing more than spending weekends catching up, that’s when I’m not tap dancing!!

Having previously worked in childcare for over 10yrs it was time for a change, so I entered the “health” industry working 8yrs for a wonderful chiropractic centre & team.

Working now at the Kaden Centre has really opened up my eyes to the amazing people that exist in this world – they truly are INSPIRATIONAL……

I look forward to saying hello next time you’re at the centre.

I first became interested in fitness and exercise 40 years ago when I joined a females only gym with my sister and Mum – we used to workout at lunchtime together in the 80’s! Since then I “jumped the fence” and switched from participant to instructor and began to truly appreciate the many health benefits of movement. With a continued passion to assist others, I re-trained in Cert III and IV Personal Training in 2017, with a particular focus on mobility and flexibility for over 50s. The challenges and rewards of working closely with others make my job one of the best in the world. Working with clients at The Kaden Centre has given me a privileged insight into the special needs of those living with cancer from first diagnosis, through treatment and during recovery and remission. This specialized knowledge is gained through the expertise and guidance of our Allied Health professionals. Like many others, I was once fearful of the “C word “… but I now know and understand that cancer IS just a word, not a sentence.
