Whilst studying Biology at university I was a keen rower, unfortunately this resulted in problems with my shoulder and lower back. Having researched and tried various treatments, it was only treatment with a Chiropractor that allowed me to continue to row.
So after a few years working for Glaxo Welcome I left and returned to education, I graduated from the Anglo-European college of Chiropractic in 2000.
I worked firstly in Sutton, and Crawley, with Brian Hammond, in large teams gaining an untold wealth of clinical skills, radiology, rehabilitation, and medical acupuncture. I continued my education whilst working and I began to specialise in my passion, babies, children and pregnant mothers to be.
I married Simon in 2003 and moved to Rowland’s Castle, and worked in Portsmouth, with Maria Browning and with John Springard in Chichester. Simon and I have had three children, our eldest Isabella, Felicity, who prefers Flixy and last but not least Augustus, named after his great great grandfather.
From newborn babies to more mature patients, including a 99 year old lady, I continue to develop my skills with continued studied and the spark that glowed all those years ago is still burning brightly. I have a fascination with my profession and am known for the personal approach to my patients, with my interests continuing to be treatment and management of chronic pain, exercise rehabilitation and paediatrics.
I have a role within the Royal College of Chiropractors CPD team (Continuing Professional Development) organising events to enhance and open specialist areas to Chiropractors on the south coast.
I have had numerous articles published in magazines and national newspapers, including Women’s Own, Prima, PlantBased, Top Sante and the Daily Mail, The Sun and Express.
