I graduated in 1999 from The University of the West of England and there after, I worked in the NHS for a number of years across medical, surgical, orthopaedics and neurology.

I then lived and worked in Queensland, Australia for 12 years, in a small rural town, leading the physiotherapy service across a region of 250km2. Here I was involved in many innovative service provision projects to overcome the challenges of geography and distance including telehealth, cross discipline work practices, hospital to home programs as well as leading the research and development project of an Advanced Physiotherapy Practitioner working in the Emergency Department as a First Contact Practitioner for orthopaedic and musculoskeletal conditions.
