 I graduated from the University of the Western Cape in 2005 and joined the Physiotherapy department in 2011 after spending the first five years of being qualified as a clinician in various areas. I completed my Master’s degree at the University of the Western Cape in 2014 and am currently registered for my PhD at the same institution. My research interest is broadly in physiotherapy education, evidence-based practice and clinical reasoning. I teach the Physiotherapy Techniques modules in the department and am part of the clinical co-ordination team.
