Biography

I have always loved everything to do with exercise and health and my interest in the how the human body works led me to pursue a career in Sports Therapy. Upon graduation I have been fortunate enough to work in a range of successful Sports Injury Clinics, working with a variety of clients. Additionally, I have worked alongside youth and senior rugby teams, enabling me to travel around the UK and be part of some great tournaments. More recently I have focused my career in academia, lecturing on BSc (Hons) and MSc Sports Therapy programs.
