Lecturer in Sports Therapy

Sport and Exercise

I thoroughly enjoy treating a range of clients and athletes and am now able to share these experiences through my teaching and hope to get future sports therapists excited about the opportunities in this growing profession.

Biography

I have always loved everything to do with sport and my interest in the how the human body works led me to pursue a career in sports therapy. I have been fortunate enough to work in successful sports injury clinics, treating a wide range of clients. Additionally, I have worked specifically in rugby, enabling me to travel around the UK and be part of some great tournaments such as Roselyn Park and Independent Schools Barbarians tournaments.
