After graduating from St Martins College (now the University of Cumbria) I initially worked in the west of county completing my core physiotherapy rotations before going on to specialise in the field of musculoskeletal physiotherapy.

In this field I progressed and worked as an extended scope physiotherapist, this role involved orthopaedic triage, injection therapy, specialist assessment and diagnostics. Following this I returned to the musculoskeletal setting as one of the clinical lead physiotherapists within the partnership trust before taking up my role as a lecturer in physiotherapy studies.
