|Position:||Course Leader - BSc (Hons) Physiotherapy|
Having qualified as a physiotherapist from RGU, I then travelled south and worked in England, undertaking my junior rotations here and progressing up to team leader roles within the acute sector. During this time I completed my MSc in Physiotherapy, with my thesis focussing upon CPD uptake amongst physiotherapists.
I then moved into education working as a lecturer practitioner at the University of Salford. Following this I moved back to Aberdeen to another lecturer practitioner role working at Woodened hospital and here at RGU. In 2008, I started working full time as a lecturer.
I am the admission tutor for both the BSc (Hons) and MSc (Pre-reg) Physiotherapy programmes, as well as year one tutor for the BSC programme, and module leader for three module across both programmes.
