BIO

I have always had an interest in sports and injuries starting out as a fitness instructor and massage therapist. Gaining experience in a Hotel Spa and leisure centre, teaching classes, creating programmes and working with clients of varying abilities and backgrounds. I progressed in my career doing additional short courses in exercise and therapy-based qualifications.

 

In 2016, I wanted to further my knowledge and interest in the treatment and rehabilitation of common and chronic injuries. I began my 3 year Bachelor of Applied Health Science degree, qualifying as a Physical Therapist. During this time I worked with sports teams, helping with injuries and rehabilitation as well as continuing in the gym and hotel environment.  

 

In September 2020, I started a MSc in Exercise Physiology. Its application in therapy has given me a greater insight in to individuals with chronic medical conditions, having gained hands-on experience, working with cancer survivors with lymphedema.

 

I belief having completed a wide variety of studies, along with in person experience, has given me a better understanding of pain, injuries and the rehabilitation process for both acute and chronic medical conditions/ injuries.
