I qualified as a physiotherapist in 1979 from the NLSP in London. I worked at two London hospitals as a junior PT before moving to the National Hospital, Queen Square to pursue an interest in neurological/surgical conditions as a Senior PT and taking part in a number of research projects. I have been teacher from 1987, gaining a M.Ed. in 1992 while teaching on two UG programmes based in London. A spell back in practice was followed by joining Christ Church inter-professional programme as a p/t senior lecturer in 2001, moving to full time working in 2006.
