I developed an interest in physiotherapy at the age of seven when my grandmother needed treatment following a stroke. In 1993 I attended the Carroll’s Irish Open in Mount Juliet where I saw the European Tour Physiotherapy Unit and decided that being a physiotherapist, with a bias in golf, was the job for me.
I qualified in 1997 with a BSc (HONS) Physio from Victoria University of Manchester. I spent the following three years in the NHS honing my basic physiotherapy skills and working with both Rugby League and Union teams.
I returned to Dublin in 2000 to work for the HSE and during this time I completed my MSc in Sports Medicine in UCD.
In 2008 I fulfilled my childhood dream of working as a physio with European Tour Golf. As part of the European Tour Performance Institute I work with a multi disciplinary team of physiotherapists, sports medicine doctors, chiropractors, osteopaths, strength & conditioning coaches and nutritionists. Our team leads are some of the best in the business and we strive to progress the quality of research and treatment in golf.
I have looked after the players on the Legends Tour since 2008 and therefore have a keen interest in keeping golfers active and competitive to their highest level, particularly golfers over the age of 50.
Now I am delighted to have my own practice and my aim is to help clients focus on and better their long term health whether that is managing or minimising pain or increasing strength and endurance. Whether it’s golf or gardening, my goal is to get you back doing what you love pain free.
