Born and bred in Highlanders country; I'm a passionate rugby fan. I graduated from Otago University in 2005 with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy and moved to the Hawkes Bay to work in a private sports physio practice and with a number of local and representative rugby union teams. I worked in Sydney both in private practice and for the Rabbitohs under 20's side. I was then privilidged to work with the Samoan team at the 2008 Rugby League World Cup in Australia, before travelling to the UK to do my OE. After a number of rewarding locum positions and some awesome times travelling around Europe, I returned to New Zealand recently to work in Wanaka where I was treating many world–class snowsport athletes.
I started at Sports Therapy in 2011 and enjoy working with the wide variety of athletes in the Nelson region. I am looking forward to working with Waimea Old Boys and Richmond Rabbits over the coming season. I'm enjoying the Nelson lifestyle, doing a bit of spear fishing and working on my golf handicap!

I am originally from North Wales in the UK. I studied a BSc in Physiotherapy in Cardiff University and qualified with honours in 2006. Following this I worked for the UK National Health Service for 5 years in order to gain good experience in a wide range of fields. It was during this period that I found my love for musculoskeletal and sporting injuries.
In February 2011, I decided that it was time to move on to more exciting and stimulating working environments in New Zealand. I initially worked in New Plymouth, then Tauranga, Wanaka and eventually made my way to Nelson. I enjoy the outdoors and have recently started competing in adventure races which combine many of the sports I enjoy doing. Nelson is such a sporty place and is a great community in which to live and work. It appears New Zealand has captured me well and truly and I can't see myself leaving anytime soon!
- Bachelor of Physiotherapy
- I enjoy all aspects of physiotherapy and look forward to discovering my passions as my experience grows.
I’m originally from down south in Te Anau. I completed my degree at the University of Otago in Dunedin. The last year of my degree, being entirely placement-based, allowed me to explore the top of the south island. Here I discovered what it was like to be warm in winter! After growing up in a lake town, I’m still adjusting to the concept of tides and occasionally call the sea a lake but I’m looking forward to the new opportunities Nelson life provides (and to purchase my first mountain bike so I can truly fit in).
As a new graduate at Sports Therapy I hope to take advantage of the great team here and learn some new skills to put in my toolbox. In the next few years I hope to complete a post graduate and begin my OE.

I was originally born in Africa but I am English as we moved back to the UK when I was 3 and was brought up in the south of England. I originally studied Biology at Oxford Brookes where I graduated with honours in 2005. I then spent a year living and working in conservation in Africa, before deciding to return to the UK and study physiotherapy. However, before starting, I managed to squeeze in a year in South Korea working as an English language teacher. I then returned to England where I graduated from Brighton university in 2010 with honours in physiotherapy and spent the next 2 and a half years gaining invaluable experience in a variety of areas. It was throughout my time working for the NHS that I decided musculoskeletal was the area of physiotherapy that I was particularly interested in and enjoyed the most. I wanted MSK to become the focus of my career so in 2013 I made the decision to move to sunny Nelson where I am lucky enough to be able to do this.
As well as travelling I enjoy keeping fit and active through a variety of activities. I enjoy hiking (or tramping), running (long and short distance), mountain biking, snow boarding and diving which is why I was drawn to New Zealand and more specifically Nelson and I have to say it has been very easy settling into this lovely, sunny community.
