I graduated from Queen Margaret College, Edinburgh in 1983. Having spent a number of years at a senior level in the NHS treating musculo-skeletal injuries, I specialised in 1988 in upper limb rehabilitation. Since qualifying I have worked for a number of private practices across the country, involving me in the treatment of top level athletes for a wide range of sports.
I joined Walnut Tree Physiotherapy in April 2004 and run a specialised hand, wrist and elbow service. I also work part time at the Wessex Nuffield Hospital managing the hand service.
I have a special interest in work place injuries and complimentary therapy and hold a post graduate qualification in acupuncture. I am actively involved in education and lecturing to both physio-therapists and the medical profession.
I am a member of the British Association of Hand Therapists and the Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Occupational Health and Ergonomics.
