Grab a coffee and sit in the quiet work room where I could watch some videos and have a laugh.
3. What is the most inspiring part of your job?
Seeing people not only recover from injuries but then continue to make progress making incredible life habit changes such as feeling more comfortable controlling their food intake and understanding how to balance everything.

Teleportation, I love to travel the world, and if there’s one thing I’ve learnt throughout the covid pandemic, airplanes and airports (despite being an amazing technological marvel), are a nightmare.
5. If you could be reincarnated as one animal, which would it be?
A Lion, working in Africa a lot I have grown to absolutely love the king of the savannah. I know it may sound cliché but they are incredible to be around in the wild.
