Doctor of Chiropractic
MChiro, MSc APP (paediatric musculoskeletal health)
I came into chiropractic after receiving treatment as a child and since I love meeting new people and lots of variety, becoming a chiropractor myself seemed the perfect career choice. I have an extremely rewarding job and spend a lot of my time helping women remain comfortable and active during pregnancy and then help their babies feed and sleep well which always makes me popular! It’s also great because it means I get to care for the extended family too, including dads and grandparents. Working with such a variety of patients means I use several different techniques, including western medical acupuncture and cranial work depending on what each individual needs.
Originally form Aberdeen in Scotland, I studied for 5 years at the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic in Bournemouth. In 2013 I was awarded a post graduate Masters degree in paediatric (child) musculoskeletal health making me one of the few chiropractors in the UK with this level of qualification. I love being in the East Midlands and have worked in Nottingham since 2011.
In my spare time I enjoy keeping active and taking up new challenges. I am a keen weight lifter and enjoy walking up mountains with my husband, daughter and pug Jelly, who you might meet in the clinic. My biggest climb came after a challenge from a patient to climb Kilimanjaro in Africa, which I did for charity in 2012. I also work with the Royal College of Chiropractors, helping train and support new graduates as they enter the world fo chiropractic practice.
