Charlotte graduated in 2008 with a 1st class honours degree in Physiotherapy from Coventry University. She completed her junior rotations before starting a senior post in community practice treating patients with neurological and respiratory conditions.  She then went on to become a Clinical Specialist in Cardiorespiratory physiotherapy. Charlotte is a member of the CSP, ACPRC & the ACPICR and has a specialist interest in the management of patients with COPD and Heart Failure. Charlotte is also the Principal physiotherapist of a private community practice.

She is the Practice Education Lead for Physiotherapy and Chair of the AHP Placement Committee for the School.  She is also Year 2 lead tutor for the physiotherapy degree.
