Mike commenced his journey in sport and rehabilitation after achieving his BA in Kinesiology & Health Science, qualifying as a Sports Therapist and Personal Trainer in 2008. He thoroughly enjoyed working in both sport and private/public rehabilitation in Canada, and continued this in London as well. It was always a dream of his to eventually train to become a Physiotherapist, thus he later went on to complete his Masters degree in Physiotherapy at Brunel University in London.
Prior to working at Connect Health, Mike worked in both the NHS and the Private Health sector of physiotherapy in London for a number of years. However, chasing a better quality of life, his family decided to relocate and settle down in the North East.
In 2019, Mike began his employment at Connect Health as a Senior Physiotherapist for the NHS Darlington contract. Mike accepted the new role as a Team Leader for the same contract in September 2019. This has consisted of line managing and developing an amazing team of both junior and senior Physiotherapists and Mike hopes to continue being involved with the Graduate Development Programme.
Mike recently moved from the Physiotherapy Team and joined the CATS service as an APP in January 2020.
On a personal level, career progression has always been important to Mike; in which he has set himself a goal of eventually working towards becoming an Advanced Physiotherapist Practitioner.
He has thoroughly enjoyed his time at Connect Health so far, and looks forward to developing his team and expanding the service. Mike is excited and eager to take on this new challenge and progress within his professional career.
