Personal profile

Biography

I am a qualified physiotherapist continuing to work clinically within private practice and performance sport supporting recreational athletes through to Olympic and World Champions since qualifying in 2000.

I have held academic positions at The University of Huddersfield, Leeds Beckett University, Sheffield Hallam and The University of Bolton delivering on Sports Therapy, Sports Rehabilitation and Physiotherapy BSc & MSc programmes.  My clinical interest is MSK and I have extensive experience working with students at all academic levels in support of their teaching, learning and assessment.

Continuing my clinical workload enables me to contextualise real-life experience into the learning environment which enriches the student experience.  Additionally though interaction of partners and associate groups/organisations I have been able to provide unique learning opportunities and experiences to students that include exposure to Professional, Olmpic and Paralympic athletes throughout the academic course.

I am keen to enhance collaborative working and interaction within the University across programmes along with forging new partnerships and associations that lead to enhanced student experince and opportunies whislt studying at LTU and beyond as a career pathway.
