About Me:

I graduated from the University of the West of England, Bristol with a BSc Hons in Physiotherapy in 2013. My undergraduate placements covered a broad range of physiotherapy within the acute setting including: musculoskeletal outpatients, trauma and orthopaedics, women's health, respiratory and elderly care. In addition, I spent time volunteering as a therapy assistant at a rehabilitation centre for adults with acquired traumatic brain injuries. Since graduating, I have worked in an acute hospital with over 560 beds as a rotational band 5 junior physiotherapist. I have completed junior rotations within trauma and orthopaedics, elderly care, and acute stroke. I have also completed competency training within on-call respiratory physiotherapy.

My current career plan is to continue to gain further experience within the core, junior rotations before going abroad next year. It is my intention to shadow and work within a variety of countries, gaining invaluable experience into the different approaches to assessment, treatment and management.
