I qualified with BSc (Hons) in physiotherapy from the University of London in 2001. Since qualifying I have gained a wide range of experience in a range of physiotherapy settings specialising in musculoskeletal physiotherapy over the past 9 years. I have worked as an Advanced Physiotherapy Practitioner for a number of years working alongside doctors and Extended Scope Practitioners to develop an evidence based Low Back Pain pathway.

I have a varied teaching interests including anatomy, physiotherapy skills, research, pain states in low back pain and muscle physiology.

I completed an MACP affiliated MSc in Advanced Physiotherapy in 2011 including publishing my research dissertation in December 2013.
