Q: What do you love about your job?

A: I am privileged to work as a physiotherapist. I find that building a connection and caring for someone's injurt or condition is a journey. Many may only need a handful of sessions, and some may need my help long-term to improve their quality of life. Ultimately,  I love helping to improve the lives of the people I treat.

Q: Whats you favourite patient journey and why?

A: I provided daily physiotherapy (sometimes 2-3 times a day) for a lovely lady in the intensive care unit. She had unfortunately developed an autoimmune condition where her muscle cells attacked themselves. Eventually, this progressed to her needing help breathing from a ventilator as her breathing muscles deteriorated. However, after several months of therapy, she was able to start breathing for herself and gradually regain some strength. I was privileged to be part of the team treating her from admission to discharge. Watching her wak out of the hospital was incredible. It was a privilege to be part of her recovery journey. I will be forever humbled and amazed by the human spirit

Q: Clinical special interests?

A: I've been fortunate to have gained a wie range of experience in my earlier NHS career; Geriatrics, Trauma & Orthopaedics, Amputees, Pelvic Health (with Sub-specialisms in post-operative Urogynae and Post-Natal), Neuro intensive Care, Cardiac Rehabilitation and Renal rehabilitation. I am an affiliate member of the Pelvic Obstetric and Gynaecological Physiotherapy society and I'm currently working towards becoming a certified APPI pilates instructor. I have a strong interest in musculoskeletal rehabilitation.

Q: My top past times?

A: My top activities outside of work span from Olympic Weightlifting and long bike rides to reading and meditation practice. My favourite place to be is the outdoors and I'm gradually ticking off all possible outdoor-based hobbies

Q: Most proud achievement?

A: I moved to Italy as a child and completed school there. I had to learn italian and Frenc as part of the curriculum. It was a lot of work and frequently frustrating but by the time I finished school, I was fluent in both. My most proud achievement is that since then I've tried not to let those hard-earned skills slip by regularly making time in my week to practice both languages.
