About Me[edit | edit source]

I did my Physiotherapy training at the University of East Anglia in Norwich. After qualifying, I worked for the NHS and then moved into private practice both in the UK and in St Lucia, a small island in the Caribbean. I have a passion for Neuro and Rehabilitation which are skills I have brought to my work in private practice. I also use the same skills when working with musculoskeletal conditions and sports; I have a passion for analysing biomechanics to improve performance and prevent injuries.

I am the Content Manager for Physiopedia and also manage the resources for the Resource Repository, which is a great place to find resources on health and rehabilitations. I enjoy writing and I used to write a weekly column for a national newspaper, in St Lucia, to educate and inform the public on general health and well-being.

What I Do For Physiopedia[edit | edit source]

Being the Content Manager for Physiopedia is such an exciting role. With over 4,000 pages and over 2 million visitors from the world each month it is important to monitor the pages for quality and ensuring they are up to date with relevant information and the latest evidence. That is a big task but luckily I do not have to do this alone, I am part of a large content team, physiotherapists from all over the world who volunteer their time to help with the Physiopedia mission - to contribute to global health through universal access to physiotherapy knowledge. I have to say I have the best role in Physiopedia, there is always something to do and new things to learn.

When I took on the challenge of Content Manager I was not quite sure what to expect, and that has not changed, there are no two days that are the same and my tasks are forever-evolving. My job involves developing, monitoring and reviewing the content on Physiopedia. Much of the content on Physiopedia is created by a group of awesome volunteers and through Content Development Projects. We all work remotely and the team is distributed globally, this can sometimes be a challenge but mostly brings great rewards and the benefit of learning from a diverse group with differing experiences.
