Who am I?
I am a Fifer born and bred with a love of running in fancy dress, science and quirky interior design. I studied at Aberdeen University and graduated with a degree in Biomedical Science (Physiology) where I discovered a love of Sports Science.
From there I went on to complete a Masters degree in Physiotherapy at Queen Margaret University in Edinburgh and worked in NHS Lothian and NHS Fife, before eventually settling back in Dunfermline and starting work with Benji Physio.
After graduating I completed my junior rotations in NHS Lothian, working across a wide range of areas including outpatients, stroke rehab and intensive care. I then moved to NHS Fife where I specialised as a Senior Physiotherapist in Orthopaedics and worked between the trauma, elective and day surgery wards until 2017.
This has given me great insight and knowledge around joint replacements, shoulder and knee surgery, back pain, as well as general post-op rehab. I started working at Benji Physio in 2018 after the birth of my second child.
As well as my NHS work I have also worked as a massage therapist at the Caledonian challenge walk, helping ease tired walkers aches and pains so they can complete the challenge.
