SPORTS / REHAB THERAPIST
I have always been passionate about sport from a young age, since I joined the athletics team at the age of eight. After competing for Scotland on several occasions, I understood the importance of rehabilitation and injury management following personal injuries that required sports therapy treatment. This inspired me to complete my Master’s degree in Sport Rehabilitation to help others return to sport pain-free and achieve their goals.
After graduating from my undergraduate degree in 2016 in Aberdeen, I moved down to London to complete my Master’s degree in Sport Rehabilitation at St Mary’s University, Twickenham. Over the last two years I have worked with a number of sports teams while I studied for my master’s. I travelled with the St Mary’s University endurance athletes to Font Romeu in France, where I carried out massage for three weeks to assist with their altitude training ahead of their summer track seasons. I currently work as a sports therapist for Bracknell and Wimbledon Rugby Clubs in both the clinic and on pitch side. My role involves player assessment, treatment and rehabilitation, with pre-game massage and taping provided on match days. I have also provided massage therapy at events such as the London Marathon and the Moonwalk London.
Working with sports teams has allowed me to expand my knowledge of musculoskeletal injuries and the importance of rehabilitation to allow them to successfully return to their sport. I have treated individuals from different levels of sporting background, from a Sunday kick-about in the park to semi-professional players. I am aware of the importance of sport and physical activity to everyday living, so I will work to create an individualised treatment plan for your specific sporting needs, whether this is from a treatment of injury or performance maintenance perspective.
My love for sport started at the age of eight when I joined the athletics team. I have competed for Scotland on a number of occasions in both the 800m and cross country. Other interests include tetrathlons, which involves running, swimming, horse riding and shooting.
