I am original from Northampton, I initially completed a degree in sport and exercise science before training as a physio in Newcastle. My background before physiotherapy was in rugby, as a physio I have a range of experience in the public and private sector along with local sports teams. More recently I have been based either on tour with a range of ballet and musical theatre companies or on Harley street in London. I love to use a range of manual techniques and exercise to get people back moving fast. My interests away from work revolve around sport and growing, cooking and eating a large variety of sometimes exciting dishes.
