Meet the team – Orthotics

Having trained as a Physiotherapist at University, I specialised in private musculoskeletal physiotherapy and practiced in the UK and Australia for four years. I then moved into the commercial sales industry, where I worked for eight years before joining Ortho Europe in May 2020. My clinical background coupled with my commercial knowledge means I able to understand the needs of patients, whilst ensuring we provide a seamless service to our customers by working closely with the relevant teams and suppliers in the background. Supported by an excellent sales team with high levels of product expertise, my passion is to provide a client-centred, reliable, and efficient service to every individual we interact with across both prosthetics and orthotics.

My journey in Orthotics started out back in 2004 when I joined Trulife within their customer service department in Sheffield. In 2008 I made the move into more sales-oriented role with the launch of the FES system Walkaid. In 2014 I became the Territory Manager covering a large area in the north of England and took on the full Orthotic and breast prosthesis portfolio. Then in 2016 I moved into the role of clinical services business manager where I worked on various projects such as the inhouse product catalogue and revamping of the schedule book. This then brought me to 2020 when I then joined the Ortho Europe team in the position of Technical Sales.

The various roles I have undertaken have given me a greater understanding of what our customers and patients require allowing me to provide the best service available to our customers and their patients.

I qualified as a Physiotherapist from Brunel University in 2003 and then specialised in private musculoskeletal and neuro/paediatric physiotherapy for five years. In 2007 I moved to Sydney, Australia and worked as a Research Physio in sports medicine and orthopaedic surgery, specialising in knee reconstruction and replacement. After that I began working in sales for DJO Global in orthotics, where I stayed for 6 years until I started a national role in 2012 as Surgical Business Manager (ANZ) for the shoulder and hip replacement portfolio. I had my daughter in 2015 and returned to orthopaedics briefly with Medacta Australia and then went into business with my husband Andrew in a joint venture with some other business partners in Brisbane in an orthotics startup company called OrthoBrace where I mainly worked in a clinical support role in orthotics, functional electrical stimulation (FES) and physiotherapy equipment.

My professional and clinical background combined with my passion for patient/client centred care equips me well for my role as Clinical Support Specialist for stock orthotics at Ortho Europe.

I studied Prosthetics and Orthotics at the La Trobe University in Melbourne, Australia graduating in 2001. Following graduation, I moved to Brisbane for a clinical placement at the Queensland Children’s Hospital and gained employment there upon completion. Over the next 10 years I worked in various clinical settings across Brisbane, covering most areas of orthotic practice. In 2012 I was recruited to take up an opportunity in sales for DJO Global in orthotics and gradually moved onto various business management related roles within the business. In 2016 I went into business with my wife Jenny, along with some other business partners in Brisbane, in an orthotics start-up company called OrthoBrace. Here I was responsible for the design and accumulation of the full range of orthotics and FES products for sale across Australia.
In 2019 with our daughter approaching school age, Jenny and I made the decision to move from Brisbane to Jenny’s original hometown of Guildford to raise our daughter. Since arriving in the UK I have overseen the re-development of the complete Ortho Europe stock orthotics portfolio.
