Q: What made you want to be a Physiotherapist?
From a very young age I wanted to become a physiotherapist
. Being an athlete myself i have had my fair share of injuries, each time I have been to a physiotherapist who has helped me to not only get to being pain free, but stronger than ever and performing at my best.
Q: University and work experience?
After sixth form I went to study at keele University, where I graduated with first class honours. Following this I started my career working in Northampton General Hospital. I have recently joined the Back and Body clinic family as a graduate physiotherapist. I am extremely excited to be working alongside such amazing therapists, who will help me to develop my existing skills as well as expand on my ever growing knowledge.
Q: What do you love about your job?
I love being able to build a relationship with patients and being able to see and help them on their journey, whether that be to become pain free, fit and healthy or to help with their sporting prowess. Through my own personal injuries and study I have become very familiar with rehabilitation
exercises and routines that allow an athlete to maintain fitness whilst having an injury. Having gained a sports massage
diploma I also love getting hands on where needed.
Q: Proudest achievement?
My most proudest achievement to date is qualifying for the European and World Championships in Sprint Triathlon for my age group in 2020. These will take place in Sweden and Canada in August. Therefore the majority of my spare time is training! It's not all serious in the world of triathlon for me as I have decided to take part in a Half Ironman at the end of the season for a little bit of fun!!!;)
Q: Fun Fact?
If I could choose one food to live off for the rest of my life it would be potatoes! I love potatoes! I feel you can do so much with a potato - mash, baked, roasties, fried, new potatoes and of course CHIPS!!!
