About Me

I qualified as a Physiotherapist from Keele University in July 2014. Throughout my time as a student I have been fortunate enough to encounter a wide range of clinical placements including Cardiac Rehab, Critical Care, MSK Outpatients, Orthopaedics and Stroke Rehabilitation. Additionally, I spent my elective placement at DMRC Headley Court, where I experienced treating complex patients with Chronic Pain.

In the summer of 2013, I volunteered at Kiwoko Community Hospital, in Central Uganda. My time at Kiwoko taught me a great deal about both their culture and medical care, giving me a glimpse of working in that part of the world. It made me much more resourceful and significantly developed my clinical reasoning. I gained experience of Paediatrics, Trauma and Tropical Medicine during my time in Kiwoko.

In September 2014, I start working as a Chartered Physiotherapist at Peterborough and Stamford NHS Foundation Trust on a rotational basis, where I shall continue to develop my knowledge and skills across a wide array of specialties. I am a long distance runner and this has sparked my interest in sporting injuries and their prevention. An area I hope to incorporate into my career, at some point in the not so distant future.
