About me

From a young age, I have always had interest in playing sport and keeping fit so I knew that my career would have to somehow involve my passion. After graduating in 2002 with a BSc in Sports Science I decided I wanted to be a physiotherapist. I graduated from Southampton University in 2006 with a MSc in physiotherapy (pre-reg).

I have worked within the NHS for 10 years which has given me a wide range of clinical experience in musculoskeletal, respiratory and neurological conditions. For 6 years I specialised as a respiratory physiotherapist working with people with disorders of the respiratory system. This includes conditions affecting the lungs, such as bronchiectasis and emphysema. I have a good knowledge of respiratory physiology, exercise and muscle physiology, exercise training, and the principles of behaviour change.

After 10 years I wanted to return to my passion of sport and exercise so in November 2016 I was lucky enough to join the team at Nottingham Sports Injury Clinic where I assess and treat a variety of musculoskeletal conditions in sporting and non-sporting populations. I also have added to the services we provide at the clinic by introducing a respiratory physiotherapy service.

I have also worked as a physiotherapist for Leicester Tigers player development program for talented 13-16 year old rugby players and often provide assessment and treatment to mountain bikers at all levels within Nottinghamshire.

I have a keen interest in outdoor sports, but cross-country mountain biking is my true love. In the summer months, I like to participate in mountain marathons, endurance events and XC racing. In the winter months, I love walking in the mountains of the UK with my dog, Rose.
