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 teenage girls.
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), which included research on how to best support women in maintaining and improving joint, muscle and wider health.
I led the University of Bristol Sports Medicine Clinic for many years, working with students, the wider public, including national and international athletes across numerous sports.
