Originally from the UK, I graduated from the University of Essex in 2015 with a first class honours degree in physiotherapy.
I have worked within a variety of clinical settings for the NHS, including inpatient rehabilitation on ITU, Cardiac, orthopaedic and neurological wards and musculoskeletal rehabilitation.
Previous to my physiotherapy work, I achieved a sports massage diploma in 2003 and have 15 years experience running a sports injury clinic, assisting clients’ recovery with sports related injuries and rehabilitation.
My areas of interest are functional movement assessment, corrective exercise prescription and football related injuries and performance .
When not working, I have a passion for hiking and climbing across the globe. I have completed the 3 highest peaks and trekked coast to coast in the UK, Kilimanjaro, Mount Everest base camp, the Inca trail in Peru and a 100km charity trek across the Great Wall of China.
I have recently made a permanent move to the Bay of Plenty with my kiwi wife and 2 children, to live a healthy and active NZ lifestyle. I look forward to providing a high level of physiotherapy for the community of Tauranga and excited to be a member of the foundation clinic team.
