I grew up on the island of Jersey in the United Kingdom and graduated from Queen’s College in Glasgow, Scotland with a Bachelor’s Degree in Physiotherapy. I began my career working in London on a busy adult neurological rehab unit, treating a wide variety of conditions including Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis and stroke.
I moved to Los Angeles in 1991 and began specializing in orthopedics. In 1997 I became an American Board-Certified Orthopedic Specialist (OCS), and I re-certified in 2007 and 2017. I was accepted into the prestigious Kaiser Permanente Orthopedic Residency Program in 1998, and after graduating I joined the faculty of the Southern California Orthopedic Residency Program, mentoring and teaching manual therapy techniques to licensed physical therapists.
I have worked with many top-class surgeons in a variety of clinical settings, including Orthopedic Hospital’s Joint Replacement Institute, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Kaiser Permanente West Los Angeles/Sunset and Kerlan-Jobe. And now I have the pleasure of working with our excellent physicians in the Conejo Valley.
At Bartley Physical Therapy we place a strong emphasis on continuing education, and I regularly attend seminars on the exciting new developments in orthopedic medicine.
Since moving to Thousand Oaks in 2004 with my husband Roger and our children Sophie and Evan, we have thoroughly enjoyed living in the beautiful Conejo Valley! At weekends I love hiking with my two Australian Shepherd dogs, Penny and Rooney and cooking Vegan and Italian food!
