Hannah S

Hannah has worked with children for over 20 years. She graduated with a first-class BSc(hons) in physiotherapy and is studying her MSc in advanced paediatric physiotherapy. Hannah knew from the age of nine she wanted to be a children’s physio, and volunteered as a carer for disabled children, in a creche, at a conductive education centre and various special schools and respite centres throughout her teenage years, until she was finally old enough to study her dream career!

Since qualifying, Hannah has only worked with children; in six special schools, an outpatient clinic and an inpatient children’s ward. She finished her NHS career as a lead consultant physiotherapist for children with complex disabilities, before starting Bumble Bee Physio in February 2019.

Hannah is a passionate disability advocate and enjoys taking children with additional needs on adventures in her spare time, as well as working out in the gym to keep up with her superhero clients!
