“I grew up surrounded by horses, dogs, cats and chickens in my family home in the New Forest. I have been immersed in the equine world since my first riding lesson on my seventh birthday. Over the years, I competed in a variety of disciplines including one-day-eventing, show jumping, dressage and showing. I spent time working on a range of competition yards which provided me with invaluable knowledge of the training and physical requirements of top competition horses.
After graduating from Brunel University with a BSc in Sports Science, I decided to focus my career on my true passion and work with animals. I spent 4 years working as as an Equine Sports Massage Therapist since qualifying in 2015, which enabled me to develop substantial knowledge and experience in equine therapy.
I also used this time to develop my understanding of canine rehabilitation, working as a canine massage therapist, and as a hydrotherapy assistant at a canine hydrotherapy centre for 18 months. Furthermore, I also gained a human Sports Massage qualification, and treat many riders and owners alongside their four-legged friends.
I received my post graduate diploma in Veterinary Physiotherapy from Writtle University College in 2019. I then completed the final stage of my master’s qualification: a dissertation investigating the effects of electrotherapies on equine spinal kinematics, which I completed in July 2021. After qualifying, I gained invaluable experience working as the lead physiotherapist at a canine hydrotherapy centre for 6 months, and the last 2 years have been spent dedicated to growing my business as an independent, mobile vet physio.
My main aim is to promote the welfare of all companion and working animals to ensure they have continually healthy, happy and comfortable lives”.
