I qualified from Kings College London in 1994 and worked in both the public (NHS) and private systems in London until 2001 when I returned to Ireland to work in Cork University Hospital. I set up the Extended Scope Physiotherapist role in Accident & Emergency managing minor injuries. I was also the liaison physiotherapist for the Headache Clinic treating tension and cervicogenic headaches until 2005.

I gained an MSc in Sports and Exercise Physiotherapy from NUIG in 2007.

Loughrea Physiotherapy & Sports Injury Clinic was established in 2005 and moved to Lakeshore Medical Centre in June 2020.

My area of special interest is Pelvic Health and Continence. I have done advanced training in the area, particularly in the management of pelvic organ prolapse and incorporate pessary fitting in treatment where appropriate. I treat Urinary and Faecal Incontinence, Overactive Bladder, Urgency, Dyspareunia/Vaginismus and Chronic Pelvic Pain. I also treat post prostatectomy patients.

Additionally, I have done training in the management of Bowel Dysfunction in adults and children, especially Constipation and Dysfunctional Defecation.
