I initially trained as a dancer and musical theatre performer before sustaining an injury that precluded any further professional involvement in that field. After teaching dance for a number of years I decided to turn my attention to helping others who had suffered similar musculoskeletal injury. I chose chiropractic as it was this that had helped me though some difficult times and had also been key in helping my father who had suffered significantly over the years with back and joint related problems.
After 5 years I graduated in 2008 from the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic (AECC) with Distinction and went on to complete a further year of post graduate study. I have experience of teaching chiropractic technique to both the 2nd and 3rd years of the undergraduate programme at the AECC and have backed up in myofascial seminars in both Sweden and Bournemouth.
I was introduced to my future husband (though I didn’t realise it at the time!) around 15 years ago through chiropractic. We have been together over 11 years and married for 7. He now teaches at the AECC at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. We have a rather theatrical 4 year old daughter and mischievous 19 month old little boy who will climb anything given the chance!
Personal time has taken a slight back seat of late with both work and family commitments, but I still enjoy the odd swim and when I do have time to myself I enjoy playing the piano and drawing. I stretch every day. I find this both beneficial physically but also incredibly relaxing mentally. I love music, cooking Thai food and generally being as creative as I can be!
I strongly believe in chiropractic, not only from the obvious benefit that can be gained physically, but also the benefit that can be gained by actively being involved in your own recovery, in understanding what is happening and why.
