Josh Rankin

My name is Josh Rankin and I’m originally from a regional cattle farming community in Northern NSW. I enjoyed an active upbringing and eventually pursued a Bachelor degree in Sport and Exercise Science. In 2014 I relocated to Brisbane to commence post-graduate studies at the University of Queensland, obtaining a Masters degree in Physiotherapy, and meeting a Benalla local who is now my lovely fiancé.

I lived and worked on beautiful Bribie Island for two and a half years before taking off around the world on the trip of a lifetime! More recently I spent 12 months in Alice Springs, working alongside a number of excellent physios and Sports Physicians, providing the best-quality care to the people of the Red Centre. I returned to Benalla in early 2021, where I hope to settle and raise a family.

I have a love of live music, hiking, and team sports, and hope to get involved in the many community events on offer here in the North East. I look forward to meeting you!
