About me

Aussie born and British based, I’ve been a Chartered Physiotherapist for over 25 years. I specialise in Sport and Exercise Physiotherapy for women and teens. 

Qualifications, experience, research

After studying for my primary degree in Physiotherapy (University of Queensland, 1995), I worked in the NHS and private sector in Australia and the UK, as well as for local and national sports teams. I completed my Masters in Sport and Exercise Physiotherapy at Cardiff University (2011). I've been involved with and undertaken research in how best to support women and teens to maintain and improve physical health.

     

I led the University of Bristol Sports Medicine Clinic for many years,  working with students, the wider public and elite athletes across numerous sports. This included numerous elite athletes, including Olympic Gold Medal winners, in hockey, athletics, netball, swimming and rugby. 

As an active mum of 2 children, runner, swimmer, gym member and racket sports player, I understand the demands on your body, focus and time. 

Working with others, Collaborations    

I work closely with Medics, Allied Health Professionals, Coaches, Pilates Instructors, other Specialist Physios and Personal Trainers. I have a professional and personal connection with This Mum Runs (most recently advising on their Run30 App and writing blogs).
