What do you enjoy about your job?

I love how my skills can impact someone’s quality of life and independence. I enjoy building relationships with the client and their family because this ultimately makes a huge difference to their engagement and the enjoyment of physiotherapy for both the client and myself. Physiotherapy can be so varied which means I can always keep learning and challenging myself to improve.

What do you enjoy about working for Therapy Stars?

Very early days but so far I have met children who have made me smile from ear to ear and the team have been so supportive and encouraging. There are so many opportunities for me to learn and challenge myself.

I used to perform so continue to do this when possible. I enjoy walking with my dogs in Snowdonia and love travelling!

I am a former professional ballerina. You would probably find me on a stage somewhere in the world or in a festival on stilts!

What is your hidden talent?

I am a black belt in karate. Hiiiiyahh!!

Brief Biography:

I grew up in North Wales with lots of siblings and animals. I moved to the Scottish Highlands when I was sixteen to start my vocational ballet training. I have been very lucky to travel, live and perform all over the world. I re-trained to become a physiotherapist and have been working in the NHS rotating around all the departments. I particularly enjoyed working with neurology patients and now have the opportunity to explore paediatric physiotherapy here at Therapy Stars!
