About Me
[edit | edit source]

I'm a highly motivated, experienced and award winning Student Physiotherapist/Fundraiser with an active interest in sports rehabilitation, business, advertising and marketing. I am qualified in pitch side sports first aid, currently completing a voluntary work experience role assisting the first team Physiotherapist at Mansfield Town Football Club. My experience in fundraising centres on raising record breaking sums of money for various non-profit organisations throughout the UK and abroad – in 2011 raising £1.32million. My interest in Physiotherapy began as a 12 year old Academy prospect at Preston North End Football Club when a medial ligament injury held back playing options and inevitably the opportunity to progress. Ever since, I have dreamed of a career in Physiotherapy, combining my passion for the beautiful game; promoting active health & fitness; and optimizing the rehabilitation of top level athletes.
