What do you enjoy about your job?

I love making connections with children, young adults and their families that can last for years. Seeing how a small change in the way you approach a problem with a child or young adult can have a huge impact on their ability to achieve quality of life and independence.

What do you enjoy about working for Therapy Stars?

I love that fact that we get to be treating Physiotherapists who can choose what approaches or “tools” we think will suit every child/family. I also enjoy learning and exploring new developments in Paediatric Physiotherapy and being able to introduce some of these into our service. I hope to be able to pass on my knowledge and skills to other Physiotherapists who are passionate about supporting our clients.

What are your interests outside of work?

Netball – I still play (occasionally) but I am honestly more likely to be found watching these days at Manchester Thunder or on the sidelines supporting my daughter. I love being outside-by the sea at our family caravan in Wales, walking with friend or climbing hills and dragon anyone mad enough with me! My time is also taken up being a taxi to my 2 teenage children and looking after our cat, Mischief.

If you weren’t in your current job role/career, what would you be?

I did A-level Latin, so would probably have pursued a career as an archaeologist. But I also love a good murder mystery, so maybe I should have been a detective!

What is your hidden talent?

I play the piano, saxophone and oboe (although not as well as I used to!). I have followed our family tree right back to the 1700s.

Brief Biography:

I grew up just outside Oswestry and have always loved living on the Shropshire/Wales border. Having known I wanted to be a Physiotherapist from the age of 13, I was lucky enough to train in Leeds. I returned closer to home and spent my 12 year NHS career working in and around Cheshire. Having had 2 beautiful children who were by then school age, I was ready for a new challenge and perspective, so I left the NHS to start my own business in 2014. I have loved seeing Therapy Stars grow and develop and in January 2019 I opened our clinic space in Penley. Our latest new service has been our Hydrotherapy service which was launched in June 2021.
