From an early age I have been involved in sport, firstly football and cricket then in secondary school discovering rugby and golf and in my early adult life discovering my passion for both surfing and lifting weights.
It's safe to say I have spent the majority of my life either playing or watching some form of sport, so naturally when the time came to decide what I would study at university I found a course that combined my love of human biology and sport!
In 2014, I graduated with a BSc in Sports Therapy from the University of Gloucestershire. During my three years of study at the university I had the opportunity to work in a variety of different sporting settings; this included both clinical placements and the chance to gain hands on experience within sport. This provided a fantastic chance to put my theoretical knowledge into practice whilst being assisted by experienced professionals.
Upon graduating, I acquired an internship with Redruth rugby club. During this time I was taught taping and strapping techniques and was able to expand and refine my own treatment approach by treating the players both in a clinical and pitch side setting. I was invited to come back for a second season as a paid assistant therapist for the club.
In addition to my work within rugby I have set up two sports Injury clinics which I run at a local leisure centre and a golf club. These clinics run 4 days a week and provide an ideal opportunity for me to expand and diversify my clinical practice.
