Emily is a graduate sports therapist. Having completed her MSc in Athletic Development and Peak Performances, she specialises in marginal gains, requiring her knowledge as a sports therapist/scientist to maximise athletic potential. Emily has worked pitch-side since her third year at university. Emily has worked in a variety of professional environments and also enjoys educating trauma management. Emily has worked within different sports including: rugby (15s, 7s, and wheelchair 4s and 5s), kayaking and swimming. Emily has spent some time in the NHS working with oncology patients.
