My Background

I started working in the Physiotherapy Department of East Surrey Hospital in 2003. After seeing the impact of exercise, I was so motivated by exercise therapy that I completed a PhD whilst working as a Research Fellow. I have since published peer review articles and have spoken at International Medical Conferences about Exercise Therapy.

Since qualifying as a Physiotherapist I have worked in many hospitals, clinics and GP surgeries. I set up ‘Mount Kelly Physio’ in Devon where I am still the Director and Clinical Lead. I am trained in Pilates, Clinical Pilates, Yoga and Acupuncture. Alongside my clinical work, my passions are horses, dogs and supporting British farming.
