Profile

I am a neurological physiotherapist with 23 years of experience and I have worked in the public and private sectors and as a clinical specialist for leading neurological medical device companies. My career path means I have developed a wealth of knowledge and expertise within the neurological rehabilitation sector. Implementing this knowledge and expertise has positively enhanced clients’ lives when they have sustained catastrophic and life-changing injuries.

Professionally and personally, I am passionate about enhancing the well-being of my clients. My empathetic and holistic approach enables me to work with my clients to identify what is relevant and essential during their journey as they transition to a new way of life following their injury. I identify solutions, implement a plan, and provide bespoke input to my clients including working with them to adapt hobbies that they once enjoyed.
