Jo qualified as a physiotherapist in 1995 from Cardiff University. Working in NHS hospitals in South Wales and Bristol, she gained experience in out-patients with a special interest in Sports Injuries. She then went on to manage the physiotherapy department at The Bupa Hospital, during which time she also worked for Bristol Rugby and helped at Lawn Tennis competitions.
She then spent a year in Melbourne Australia and whilst there worked for Aussie Rules football team Richmond which she found to be a very demanding and rewarding position!
On her return to the UK, Jo took time out to have her family and is now excited about being able to return to practice at Bristols premier Physiotherapy Centre.
Having been a track athlete as a junior, and spending time competing nationally, Jo has a keen interest in running injuries and with helping athletes to rehabilitate and return to competition.
Jo still takes part in road races at half marathon and marathon distances and is hoping to move up to ultra marathons when she has time to train ! She is a keen tennis player and also plays in the Bristol netball leagues. She has two horses, which take a lot of exercising, and her children compete in one day events and show jumping.
