Lisa graduated with a 2;1 from Salford University in 2009. She worked for a short while in the NHS, before making the move into private practice and sports. She then worked in a busy private practice for eight years, working with a variety of injuries and age groups, Lisa has a particular interest in treating sports injuries and working with complex and persistent pain, after attending the “Neuroscience of Pain” CPD (continuing professional development).
Joining Malone Rugby Club, All Ireland League Division One, in 2009 as team physiotherapist she enhanced her experience working with musculoskeletal and sports injuries. Here she completed first responder trauma First Aid and Safe Rugby Training with the IRFU. At Malone she treated a variety of patients, form the elite to adolescent athlete… and even the veterans!

She was lucky enough to attend the European Championships, Small Countries Division Finals which took place in May 2017, Reykyavik, and accompany the team to Karlovy-Vary (Czech Republic) for the World Championships Qualifiers.
Lisa played high level Volleyball with National League Teams in England and for Queens University Belfast, so she has a fair idea of the type of injuries picked up….not to mention the mix of frustration and motivation that players go through when injured and in pain.
