About Me[edit | edit source]

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, with a particular love for Wheelchair Rugby. I currently work in a Paediatric Primary Care in a community setting with children from 0 - 17 years. I am also the MOOC Manager with Physiopedia assisting with the development of new courses for Physiopedia Plus, with a particular interest in developing Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC's) that support rehabilitation professionals in low resource settings.
