About me

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 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. 

My current work

  • 1:1 Physiotherapy assessment and treatment

  • Empowering women through workshops and speaking events. 

As an active mum of 2, runner, swimmer, gym enthusiast and tennis player, I understand the demands on your body and time. I'm keen to share my knowledge and expertise to manage pain, injuries and the unique musculo-skeletal health issues women face.
