I joined Oxford Brookes in April 2002 from Manchester School of Physiotherapy where I was involved in teaching since 1998. I am currently one of the physiotherapy clinical placement leads and teach on the BSc and MSc (Pre-registration) Physiotherapy Programmes.

Previously I worked as a clinical physiotherapist in the field of musduloskeltal medicine and rheumatology, undertaking an MSc in physiotherapy as a part time student at Manchester Victoria University.

In addition to my role with Oxford Brookes University I work as a clinical physiotherapist and pilates instructor.
