Growing up I took part in a variety of sports including gymnastics, swimming, hockey and netball. I always had an interest in how the human body works, the importance of exercise on health and wellbeing, and how the body recovers from injury. Alongside this was a desire to help others with charity work, therefore it was only natural for me to combine these passions with a career in Sports Therapy.
I graduated from The University of Hertfordshire in 2017 with a First Class BSc (Hons) (SW) Sports Therapy degree. Whilst at university I spent a year working as a Sports Therapist for the University’s Women’s Basketball Team where I won an award for outstanding contribution with the student intern physio team. As a part of this degree I was privileged to spend a season working within the medical department at Bristol City Football Club Academy providing assessments, treatments, rehabilitation programmes, and pitch side first aid. I have carried out many placements and volunteer work including providing sports massage to Asthma UK runners in the London Marathon, working in a private school and numerous private clinics.
Since graduating I have worked in a busy private physiotherapy clinic treating both sporting and general musculoskeletal injuries. I can provide many hands-on treatments including mobilisations, massage and electrotherapy as well as formulate tailored rehabilitation programmes. I am a good communicator, versatile, compassionate and take a holistic approach to treatment to help provide the best care to facilitate a full recovery.
I have completed courses in Radial Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy, Dry Needling and Kinesio Taping and I am excited to develop further skills and qualifications as my career progresses. I have a desire to continue to learn and expand on my skill set to be the best I can and provide patients with the best treatment and advice.
I have a keen interest in sporting injuries and would love to specialise in the near future in lower limb injury treatment and rehabilitation.
