Linda graduated from the University of Teesside in 2000. She became a Physiotherapist after rupturing an Achilles tendon which required treatment and her experience set her on her current career path. She completed her junior rotations and specialised in MSK at Ipswich Hospital, before joining the South West Essex service in 2005 to be closer to London.
Whilst working as a Band 6, Linda completed her Master’s degree at the University of Hertfordshire, graduating in 2009 with a commendation. She has worked in the CATS service ever since and is usually based at Brentwood Community Hospital where she sees all areas of the body, except for the lumbar spine. She is also one of the Team Leads for this service which she finds both interesting and challenging. Linda is a keen sportswoman and enjoys skiing, squash, running, tennis and general fitness classes.
