Since I started university in 2015 I dreamed that one day I would be a head physio within a sports club. Throughout university I had the chance to work with some amazing people to get me to where I am today. I had the pleasure to work with a world class physiotherapist Alan Smith who was the England physio for 10 years, I was under his wing for 3 years learning all the ins and outs of certain injuries and how to care for them, which was rewarding for me to see how patients come in with an injury and at the end leave pain free and happy.
I also played a head physio in a number of sports clubs within injury ranging from; football, rugby, hockey to basketball - each presenting their own certain injuries, however I didn't feel as though i was getting the most out of it due to being limited to what I was allowed to do. However recently. My first starting block was to be involved with a club called Frickley F.C. Helping the physio out with certain treatment, strappings care for the players and providing advice, I attended for 1 year and gained a lot of knowledge from the surrounding staff and players, however i was ready to move on as I thought I was ready to rely on myself and feel confident in my own decisions and why I was doing them.
During October of 2018 I received a message from the head coach who knew me previously from past clubs and asked if I was able to join them as their head physio, this took no thought from me whatsoever as I knew this was my dream to be a head physio at a sports club - by the coach having faith in me has made my dream come true and I am so pleased to be in the position I am today.
