I completed my Sports Therapy degree in 2017 at UCB. I was then successful in becoming a graduate teaching assistant, working with the HE Sports Therapy staff and the FE Sport staff.
This led to a full-time lecturing position teaching across both FE and HE courses. I also work closely with marketing, organising events and taster days for schools and colleges, and also student recruitment events such as UCAS fairs.
As a sports therapist, I have worked for a semi-professional football team in Derby, helping the coaching team during pre-season screening testing, health and wellbeing and injury management.
I also have private patients that I see at a sports injury clinic at David Lloyds in Derby. Additionally, I regularly work for private organisations and charities, providing treatment and consultations at events.

I am a graduate sports therapist at The Derbyshire Sporting Joint, working as part of a multidisciplinary team with physiotherapists, podiatrists and soft tissues therapists.
