Kate is a valued colleague of mine. She is an excellent clinical physiotherapist with very up to date knowledge and skills. Having worked in private practice, NHS and physiotherapy academia she is well placed to give academic support with contemporary clinical knowledge to both undergrads and post grads.
She guided me with masters levels portfolio and essay writing recently which helped me develop my critical appraisal within this work and improve my grammar and writing style. I would reccomend Kate to anyone looking for this type of support or mentorship.
I worked with Kate for around 18-24 months when she was lecturing at Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh. Kate brought extensive clinical experience to this role, particularly in relation to musculoskeletal Physiotherapy. I co-taught with Kate on subjects relating to health, wellbeing and behaviour change. I found that Kate relates very well to students as she is approachable and encouraging, with extensive knowledge about current Physiotherapy practice.
Kate was absolutely brilliant helping me with my MSc coursework! She gave me guidance and advice and this allowed me to work out the answers for myself. Kate is worth every penny and I'll definitely but getting her help again.
