Biography

I joined the University in October 2018 after working for over 20 years in the NHS. I have worked in both the acute and community settings, specialising in acute medicine and elderly rehabilitation. I have had leadership experience in my clinical roles and supervised physiotherapy students on placement.

I teach on a range of modules across both programmes for Physiotherapy. I am currently module lead for contemproary issues in health, promoting health through physical activity and exercise, contemporary physiotherapy practice and cardiovascular respiratory physiotherapy.
