I am a neuro-occupational therapist with over 10 years qualified experience, currently working at St. George’s Hospital in Tooting.  I joined Headway in 2015 facilitating the then newly formed Croydon Group.  I spend most of my spare time at my allotment but also enjoy camping, mountain biking, surfing and snowboarding.
