Hannah qualified as physiotherapist in 2000. She quickly realised she wanted to specialise in Paediatrics and gained her first Paediatric senior post in 2002 for Leeds NHS Trust. She then when on to specialise further in Paediatric Musculoskeletal and Rheumatology physiotherapy and was lucky enough to be able to work within these areas solely for over 2 years.

Hannah then gained a senior post at Sheffield Children’s Hospital working as the sole physiotherapist within the Paediatric Rheumatology Team in 2008. Alongside her Paediatric work Hannah qualified to treat animals with a Masters in Veterinary Physiotherapy in 2005. This enabled her to expand her business and work for herself.

She was very pleased to be asked to join Leeds Children’s Physiotherapy in 2009 by Dawn Wills. This has enabled her to continue treating many children and adolescents with musculoskeletal problems.
