Chartered Physiotherapist

My Journey

I began my career working as a domiciliary carer in the community. I then worked as a Learning Disability Support Worker for a short period of time before successfully securing a role as a Therapy Support Worker on a Brain Injury Unit for the NHS. After a few years, I decided that Physio was the career I wanted to pursue and was very lucky to earn a place on an intense Practice Based Learning Physiotherapy Course. I graduated in 2019 and began working as a Rotational Band 5 Physiotherapist with the University Hospitals of Leicester Trust. I then took a secondment as a Band 6 back to Elderly rehabilitation and Medicine before moving to Leicestershire Partnership Trust to work as a Senior Learning Disability Physiotherapist.

Something about me

As a child I had lots of surgeries on my hips. I didn’t like my physiotherapist very much. After seeing many physio’s throughout my life, it dawned on me how much they actually helped me and out of this was born my passion to help people the same way they had once helped me. I had a hip replacement at the age of 27 following arthritis caused by the childhood hip condition. I am a much better Physiotherapist because of this experience as I understand the patient journey uniquely and know the challenges that patients are faced with during a period of injury/illness/recovery first hand.
