I am a Year 4 Student Physiotherapist currently on the integrated master’s degree programme at Keele University.

I am currently specialising in Neurology and CVR and due to qualify in July 2023. As part of my degree, I am currently working on a study focusing on the qualitative benefits of music therapy in the stroke population.  

I am a strong advocate for the NHS and feel that providing a holistic patient-centred, free at the point of delivery, service is integral. Prior to becoming a student, I worked as a Complaints Manager of a banking corporation for 19 years. After losing my dad aged 61 to Multiple Myeloma, I embarked on a new career, allowing me to support people facing impossible odds. 

I currently volunteer for two charities; responding to emergency calls for West Midlands Ambulance Service as a First Responder and for Therapies Unite, a Mexican based charity promoting independence in the disabled community. 

I have been a member of the Physiotherapy Research Society since 2020 and my reflection on the 39th Scientific Meeting was published in the Journal of Academic Development and Education.

I am proud to have been selected as a Student Member, to encourage and engage other students into exploring research.

Networking has the power to build alliances and the PRS provides a platform encouraging people of all abilities to explore their true potential.
