Experience & Background
I graduated from University College London in 1995 and took my first job with the National Health Service at The Middlesex Hospital. As a junior physiotherapist I rotated through the specialties of respiratory intensive care, geriatric care, neurology and musculoskeletal outpatients. Experience in these areas solidified my desire to focus on the musculoskeletal field.
I arrived in Hong Kong and took a physiotherapy role at The Matilda Hospital where I worked in maternity, postoperative inpatient and general outpatient care. I then decided to focus on movement dysfunction. Over the next four years I trained in and worked with rehabilitative Pilates exercise. I trained with the BET Pilates technique, Dance Medicine Australia, and the Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute. During this time I was lucky enough to act as a clinician in a research trial investigating the effect of exercise on low back pain. I took annual trips back to the UK to further my professional development and there took numerous courses in all areas of movement dysfunction. At this time I also had the opportunity in three consecutive years to work at the Hong Kong Open with elite men’s tennis.
In 2000 I moved to Switzerland for six years and worked in private clinics in both Geneva and Neuchatel. I was fortunate enough to learn from Master Pilates instructor Donna McLean and further my BET Pilates training.
I returned to Hong Kong in 2006 and continue to work with rehabilitative Pilates as a senior physiotherapist. Since my return I have continued my learning, most notably in the Pilates sphere with Elizabeth Larkam and by honing my skills in gait / running biomechanics and in the treatment of chronic pain. I commenced work at Posture Plus in 2015 and continue to search for new and interesting ways to help my clients.
