Jodie qualified with a BSc (Hons) in Physiotherapy from Sheffield Hallam University in 2006.
Since then she has worked in a variety of settings gaining vast knowledge and experience including acute hospitals, neurological out-patients and the community.
Jodie went on to specialise in the field of Rehabilitation in 2009 and gained a PGCert in long-term conditions in 2013 from The University of Sheffield.
Since then she has narrowed her specialist interest further into the field of Neurology working on a stroke unit and completing her Bobath training, and in Neuro out-patients with a particular interest in the treatment of Parkinson’s. It was within this role that she set up and established a Parkinson’s exercise class.
When not at the White House, Jodie currently works as part of a specialised Neurological team within the NHS in Sheffield.
Jodie is committed to helping people with Parkinson’s and is PD warrior accredited. She has also gained additional qualifications in Physical activity and exercise in Rehabilitation, gait analysis in Neurological conditions and Nordic walking to enhance her skills in the management of Parkinson’s.
Outside of work Jodie enjoys spending time with her husband and 2 boys, going for bike rides, dog walks and trips away in her camper-van.
