In 2011 she became Worcester Ladies rugby 1st XV physio and has worked in the womens’ premiership for the last 5 seasons.

She worked with the team through autumn internationals, the six nations and to the World Cup in 2014 where they were crowned world champions. She has continued to work with the XVs team now for her 3rd season and also covers some work for the women’s 7s team.

She has worked with gymnasts, bobsleigh athletes, netballers, female footballers and disability athletes in swimming, basketball and equestrian dressage.
