Mandy qualified from The Queen’s College Glasgow in 1986 and after a number of years despairing with NHS inefficiency and bureaucracy, escaped to the real world and set up in Private Practice. She worked in Occupational Health with Strathclyde police and was a part time clinical supervisor with Caledonian University and she also had 3 children to add to the mix.
As there was no employment of any sort in Sport at the time, she ran onto various pitches and athletic tracks over Europe in her spare time to attempt to patch the players and athletes back to health. An exhausting but very enjoyable existence!
Mandy was a physio with the Scottish Commonwealth Games Team in Kuala Lumpar, Manchester and then head physio in Melbourne 2006.
Her institute career began back in 2000 as a network physio and she later blindly accepted the position of Lead on Strength and Conditioning and Curling. which are two areas she had no idea about, but has come to be very passionate about since!!
Mandy is currently part of the GB Curling support team for Vancouver and has enjoyed the challenge of working with such an innovative and motivated team.
Her present role at the SIS is National Physiotherapy Network Coordinator which involves amongst many things supporting the physios working out in the network to ensure our support is uniform across the country.
