After many years as a sports therapist and coach, Katie left Sheffield Hallam University with an MSc in Physiotherapy, as well as qualifications in both Sports Massage and Medical Acupuncture.
Since then she has worked in MSK and occupational health physiotherapy, before joining the White House Clinic in 2023. Her interest in helping people rebuild their lives through physiotherapy stems from growing up with severe scoliosis requiring bracing and many hours of treatment, so she can empathise with many aspects of her patients’ journeys. As well as her passion for helping others with spinal difficulties, she also enjoys getting stuck in with the rehabilitation of sporting injuries, having previously worked with professional rugby union teams both pitchside and in training.
Currently alongside her MSK physiotherapy role, Katie also works as a First Contact Practitioner (FCP physiotherapist) in General Practice for the White House Clinic. This role relies heavily on her ability to make rapid and accurate diagnoses to ensure patients receive the best treatment available as soon as possible.
Outside work, Katie has a background in equestrian sports having competed to a high level in Showjumping, representing her county and being shortlisted for GB U21s. She still enjoys riding out in the Peak District, as well as playing competitive Tennis, and having been a lifelong gym-goer has recently taken up CrossFit.
