I qualified as a Physiotherapist at Coventry University in 2000 with a Bsc (Hons) in Physiotherapy and was then employed by Warwickshire NHS Trust as a Junior Physiotherapist where I covered rotations such as women's health and obstetrics, musculoskeletal outpatients, acute respiratory and acted up in a senior II role within neurology. I then pursued an Msc in Manipulative therapy at Coventry university full time and am a member of the MACP. Following on from this, I was employed by the Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch NHS Trust within a static senior II post within musculoskeletal Outpatients.
