About Yourself: 

Growing up in Australia gave me the opportunity to play a lot of sport. At 16 years old I moved to the UK to play football after a trial with Middlesbrough F.C Academy. After sustaining a few big injuries I decided to go to university and study as a physiotherapist. Since qualifying, I have worked in professional rugby league and also privately. My additional training has been around general movement patterns and biomechanics with a strong emphasis on rehabbing the injured athlete.
