Academic Course Leader, Sports Therapy
"I have more than 17 years' experience working as a sports therapist and was the first female sports therapist to head up a professional football medical team.
I have travelled all over the world supporting teams in tournaments, including the World University Student Games in China, an international football tournament in the Cayman Islands and The Milk Cup in Ireland. I was recently the sports therapist for a UNICEF charity match at Old Trafford, organised by David Beckham, which saw a Rest of the World team take on a Great Britain and Ireland side. For that match I looked after some great players including Ronaldinho, Patrick Kluivert, Robert Pires, Edwin van der Sar and Luis Figo - a FIFA World Player of the Year.
Our students have taken up the chance to work hands on with the Tonga rugby team, Malawi Olympic team, Gloucestershire Fire and Rescue Service and the Severn Stars netball team, to name a few."
