Kirsten qualified from Teesside University in the UK eleven years ago. Prior to this she completed a degree in Sports Science at Portsmouth University.  Kirsten has experience working in the private sector specialising in orthopaedics, musculoskeletal and acupuncture, and more recently cancer rehabilitation.

Two years ago she completed her PINC cancer rehabilitation qualification. Kirsten is also a qualified Pilates instructor and managed her own studio in the UK. She feels Pilates is a great adjunct to physiotherapy and rehabilitation.

Kirsten is passionate about rehabilitation and believes Physiotherapy is beneficial for all people, at any stage of their recovery, pre and post-surgery or living with an illness. Rehabilitation helps improve function, reduce pain, improves muscle strength and stability, as well as improving your well-being and restoring confidence.

In her spare time Kirsten and her husband enjoy walking, cycling and getting out and about exploring this beautiful country.
