My passion is to get people back to their lives, whether they are derailed by injury, their bodies not feeling like themselves, or the natural aging process. I help clients get back to sport, work, health and beauty so that they can feel more like themselves and enjoy their lives again.
I started out as an athlete early in life by playing sports in high school and college. Then kept up an active lifestyle throughout my life. And currently still play sand volleyball and exercise regularly.
My educational background includes undergraduate studies at Emory, Medical School at LSU in New Orleans, Residency at UOC and Fellowship in Sports Medicine and Interventional Spine in Hawaii.
I started out treating the customary patient for back and body pains with the treatments available at the time. These were often limited to helping with pain for usually just a shortened period of time.
This experience drove me to explore other avenues of treatment that would help people for longer periods of time or perhaps help resolve the issue.
I started exploring both cosmetic and regenerative medicine a few years ago. The cosmetic to help people feel better and more youthful, the regenerative for more healing of injuries and recovery back to sport and life. This path has led me to be able to treat the whole person and to achieve wellness.

My role as Clinical Director of Nottingham Physio includes offering direction, support and guidance to all members of the Sports Medicine team to provide the best possible care for our athletes / patients.
To ensure our clients are achieving optimal performance levels we integrate an evidence-based model (science) with experience based evidence (art). Both elements are integral to devise performance strategies for our clients to achieve their goals.
I have a real passion for movement analysis when assessing, diagnosing and treating injured athletes as well as developing and delivering individualized performance reconditioning programmes.
Academically, I have completed degrees in both Sport Science and Physiotherapy as well as a PGCE in Primary Education, an MSc in Sport and Exercise Medicine and a postgrad in Manual Therapy with MACP accreditation. I am an associate lecturer on the MSc fro Sport & Exercise Medicine at the University of Nottingham and regularly lecture on the undergraduate physiotherapy course at the University of Nottingham as well..
There is a lot of potential to be professionally courageous and stamp my mark within this medical department, which I really enjoy.
