I qualified as a physiotherapist from Keele University in 2004, and started working life as a rotational physio in the NHS, just outside London. I stayed working for the same Trust for 7 years, ultimately specialising in neuro rehab, before taking on my dream job in a specialist neurosciences centre in Brighton.
