A Bit About Me
Before studying physiotherapy, I gained a Sports Science degree from Trent Polytechnic in Nottingham.
I qualified as a physiotherapist from the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital, Birmingham in 1993. I spent 8 years working in the NHS at the Leicester Royal Infirmary, 5 of those as Senior Physiotherapist of a busy Trauma Orthopaedic Ward. During this time, I worked in Gondor, Ethiopia to help set up a physiotherapy department in the main hospital there. When I came home I then decided to set up my private practice.
I'm proud to say I worked with the Leicester Tigers Rugby Club for 9 years, as one of the principal physios for the First Team and Academy. This itself brought further opportunities and I was chosen to be the principal medic on two major charity walks. The first with Jeremy Guscott (England and Bath Rugby Player) who walked 800 miles for Leukaemia Research and the second with Phill Tufnell (England cricketer and TV presenter) who walked 500 miles for Macmillan Nurses.
I moved to Chinley in the High Peak in 2007. I love living here and, time permitting, get out in the hills on my mountain bike, but this has taken a bit of a back seat since becoming a mum.
I really enjoy working with all age groups and currently focus on the private physiotherapy sector. In addition to musculoskeletal physiotherapy, I also address foot biomechanics and can use acupuncture as part of treatment.
I have had extensive involvement with consultants and GPs and am able to organise further assessment from specialists if required.
