I’m an osteopath based in Solihull, and a former professional Mixed Martial Arts fighter. For those who follow these things, I was the first British woman to compete in the UFC. These days I still train and coach Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, but I spend more time putting people back together than taking them apart. When I’m not doing that, I’m often to be found climbing or lifting heavy things.
I also have a PhD in theoretical computer science, play the piano, and have a ten year old son who keeps me from getting lazy.
My professional website for my osteopathy work is here. There are some more details about my MMA career and background on my Wikipedia page. This is my personal blog, and is where I write about whatever catches my interest.
I spend a lot of time thinking about how to do things better – playing sports, recovering from injury, getting stronger, learning new skills, critical thinking, relationships, parenting, politics, life in general. That’s reflected in much of what I write. If I bumped into a version of my eighteen year old self in an alternate universe, it’s the sort of thing I might chat to her about over a coffee or four.
