I have been fortunate enough to work in the highly specialised area of cranial remoulding and with STARband. This year, I travelled to America to complete Orthomerica’s Advanced Cranial Training Program and have been awarded the title of 'STARband Cranial Educator'.
I love meeting and helping the families and seeing the improvements in head shape that the treatment gives. It is very rewarding to be in a position to help babies and families at such an important time in their life.
I qualified as a Prosthetist/Orthotist BSc (hons) at Salford University in 2002, since then I have specialised in paediatrics. I have worked for RSL Steeper since qualification. I have been mainly based in Leeds in both the community clinics and in the Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust; working with children with neurodevelopmental, muscular skeletal and orthopaedic conditions. I especially enjoy working within multidisciplinary clinics such as my orthopaedic clinic at the Leeds General Infirmary treating babies with talipes equinovarus (club foot) with the ponsetti technique.
I was promoted to Paediatric Clinical Specialist in 2006, and take an active role in the training of new students and graduates within the trust and the company.
I have been lucky enough to have two beautiful children and enjoy all that family life can throw at me!
