BSc (Hons) Physiotherapy
I have been working as a Physiotherapist for 20 years, qualifying from the University of East Anglia. After gaining experience working in all core areas of Physiotherapy, I relocated to Sussex where I have specialised in Neurological Physiotherapy, working throughout the rehab pathway from Neuro ITU to rehab in the community.
I worked in the Community Neuro Rehab Team in Brighton for 9 years where I led and evolved the Early Supported Discharge Team for Stroke from its outset, liaising with a range of clinicians and interdisciplinary services, whilst continuing my love for working with clients with a range of neurological conditions. I thoroughly enjoy and recognise the importance of home- based rehab where goal setting can be personal and vary for each client. I enjoy setting individual goals whilst using objective measures and evidence-based rehab. My experience working in interdisciplinary teams in a range of settings, but foremost the community, allows me a holistic approach to my clients' treatments.
I love running, music and the outdoors, appreciating the Sussex countryside and coast with my young family whenever possible.
BSc (Hons) Physiotherapy
I qualified from St George's Hospital Medical school in 2003 with a BSc in Physiotherapy. My career began at Addenbrookes Hospital in Cambridge before moving to St Helier Hospital in Sutton. I completed my junior rotations before moving to Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals to complete my senior inpatient rotations. I specialised in elderly care and led a team of physios for several years, focusing on elderly and acute medical wards. Following this I moved into working with patients in Accident and Energency and on the acute medical unit. I developed the therapy role in this area and helped progress the formation of the therapy team into a fully integrated multidisciplinary team. The patient caseload is varied covering patients with acute medical conditions, falls and balance issues, broken bones and cognitive deficits amongst various other conditions. During the covid outbreak I moved back into the wards to lead the medical team in treating recovering covid patients, general elderly care and also those suffering with dementia. I have also worked closely with the frailty team managing patients with a multitude of problems on the frailty wards.
I am a member of AGILE (a recognised Professional Network of the CSP of Physiotherapists working with Older People).
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, spinning, running, pilates and socialising with friends.
