Having a keen interest and participation in sport I have worked and travelled with a number of different sports teams – football, athletics, hockey and water polo and also been Team Physiotherapist at Major Games.

I have been involved in working with junior international golf squads, liaising with PGA professionals, assessing and developing golf specific exercise programmes to enhance playing and prevent injuries.

I have always enjoyed playing sports, particularly hockey, playing for many years in a club team.  I have now changed to golf and look to improve my game as much as possible!
