Upon graduating from the University of Salford with a degree in Sports Rehabilitation, I worked in a private sports injury clinic as part of an interdisciplinary team providing therapy and exercise rehabilitation. Alongside the clinical work I have extensive experience in providing therapy in the field of rugby union. I led the sports injury management at a variety of rugby clubs including Coventry RFC, Rugby Lions RFC and Nuneaton RFC. In 2010, 2011 and 2012, I was part of the medical team that supported the GB Ice Hockey team in their World Championship campaigns. I have also provided medical support to the U18's rugby team from Bablake School, Coventry, on their tours to South Africa in 2004, 2006, 2008 and 2013. I began lecturing on the Sports Therapy programmes at University College Birmingham in 2009 and since have taken on the roles of sports injury clinic and final year manager. I currently lead on the Professional Clinical Practice module at level 6.
