Personal profile

Personal profile

I have combined a successful career in education with my skills and knowledge as a Sports Therapist to work as a senior lecturer in higher education. In addition to this is I continue to work as a practitioner, with much time spent working in a clinical setting, as well as in Rugby Union, with a strong focus on sports trauma management.

In addition to Sports Therapy I am passionate about strength and conditioning; particularly Olympic lifting. I have been lifting since 2010 and this had had a huge influence in my therapy philosophy. I believe in technical accuracy and mobility and these are elements which I apply to my practice and rehabilitation, especially for the athletic population.
