Having studied Sports Science and Psychology at University I began my career working in leisure management at a busy sports centre where I became Duty Manager. Alongside this role I was able to coach Trampolining, work in the gym inducting and providing exercise programmes as well as many other responsibilities that came with the job. It was here that I developed my passion for helping others and became involved with the GP referral scheme that we effectively ran from the centre. I loved working alongside people helping them work towards their goals and recovering from illness, it was at this point I decided leisure management wasn’t for me and that I needed to go back to University to study for my Physiotherapy degree.
I graduated from the University of Hertfordshire in 2007 and gained my first Physiotherapy role at the Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust. This allowed me to experience many different avenues in Physiotherapy and develop my skills in a number of specialist areas. With continued professional development and post graduate courses I further enhanced my skill base.
In early 2014 my family and I decided to move back to our roots and moved to Cambridgeshire. I worked for a short time back with the NHS in a Community role before I was delighted to secure a role with March Physiotherapy Clinic. Although I am still a relatively new member of the team here I feel I have achieved one of my career goals of working in a job that I love.
Outside of work I live with my husband, two young children and my border terrier! I try to keep myself fit and active. Having recently completed the Three Peak Challenge for Meningitis Now, I am now looking for my next challenge...so watch this space!!
