Justine is an adventurer, senior NHS acute and critical care physiotherapist and volunteer aid worker. Specialising in trauma, complex long-term rehabilitation, as well as acute and critical care (including Ebola patients transferred to high security units in the UK), Justine has worked at the Royal Free, London for 9 years. She holds a BSc in Sports Therapy from the University of Hertfordshire and a BSc in Physiotherapy from the University of East London. Prior to joining the Royal Free, she worked as a physio at West Ham United FC and Wasps RFC.
Away from the wards, Justine has led multiple cross-country ski, kayak and hiking expeditions in the Canadian and European Arctic. With a deep appreciation of science and history, Justine hopes to engage people in those subjects through her adventures. These include a solo 3,500 mile cycle ride across 15 countries of the former Iron Curtain, a 1000 mile walk along the entire length of Finland and a Via Ferrata climbing adventure along the WWI front line of the Dolomite mountains. Justine also volunteers as an emergency responder, providing care and physiotherapy in flood-stricken Louisiana, in Haiti following Hurricane Matthew, working with Syrian refugees in Greece and helping to rebuild the infrastructure of schoolhouses in Uganda's Kiryandongo refugee camp.
