I am a physiotherapy graduate of University College Dublin, with an MSc in Physiotherapy from University College London and a Diploma in Clinical Education from NUIG. I have worked in a broad range of clinical areas in the hospital setting and was clinical tutor to 3rd year physiotherapy students of UCD for a number of years. Since specialising in musculo-skeletal physiotherapy and working in private practice, I have also worked part-time as a lecturer in functional anatomy and musculo-skeletal assessment and treatment. In February 2011, I joined the Practice Education Team at UL and now work fulltime as a Regional Placement Facilitator.
