About Me

I graduated from the Royal College of Surgeons, Ireland with a BSc (Hons) in Physiotherapy in 2013. I have come to Physiotherapy following a career in Sport spanning over 20 years, working predominantly in the field of Paralympic Sport. I have always had an interest in Physiotherapy and throughout my career in sport have worked closely with some brilliant physiotherapists. So I decided to return to education and complete my degree in Physiotherapy. I work in an Acute Hospital, currently on a Women's Health & Paediatrics Rotation including both Inpatient and Outpatients. I am also a Learning Architect with Physiopedia assisting with the development of new courses for Physiopedia Plus.
