Before qualifying as a Physiotherapist in 1987, Fiona took an Honours Degree in Physiology at Birmingham University. She worked for 9 years at Queens Medical Centre, Nottingham where she specialised in Musculoskeletal problems & worked closely with Consultants as a Senior Physiotherapist in Orthopaedic, Spinal, Trauma, Post-Operative and Rehabilitation Clinics.
She set up an Acute Sports Injury Clinic in A&E where she also carried out Research into ‘whiplash’ injuries. Since then Fiona has worked in the Private Sector at Nuffield Hospitals and Physiotherapy Clinics in Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire.
Fiona’s leisure activities include horse riding as a teenager and a decade of Half Marathon running. She pursued a passion for Rock Climbing over 15 years in the Peak District and Scotland, and enjoys exploring mountains in the wildernesses of the Highlands with her husband Tim and their Vallhund dogs. Her working Border Collie currently helps her manage her 20 Shetland Sheep – who have ensured that she appreciates the value of ‘strong core muscles’ when handling livestock!
