Charlie qualified in York in the UK and worked in private practice, with the Ministry of Defence and in the NHS for 10 years before moving to New Zealand. This has given her a varied experience in physiotherapy treatment from acute injuries to persistent pain, and she enjoys working with patients to get them back to what they love, whatever the injury or their journey so far. In her spare time she is keen on tramping and exploring her adopted ‘backyard’.
