Founder of Born to Run and The Canine Advocate
All my life I have strived to be the best at what I do. In sport, I excelled in Karate, Sprinting, Long Distance Running. Hockey, Netball, Fencing….
I’ve always had a keen interest in health and in fact went from wanting to be a vet to instead looking to become a doctor of physiotherapy, but life took a different turn for me and I ended up working in an accounts office and jumped quickly into the corporate world.
Through necessity I have always been self-driven, and self-motivated I’ve stepped out of my comfort zone more times than I can shake a stick at. In fact, stepping out of my comfort zone is pretty much the norm now.
“I believe that a kinder, safer, happier world starts with happier, healthier people and animals and that all animals deserve a world-class health service.”
I quickly and successfully tracked my way up the corporate ladder throwing all my energy at every role like it was the most important thing in the world!
Whilst I’ve done all that and thought that’s what my life was about I realised what I really wanted in my life was more freedom to spend more time with my daughters and husband, and find fulfillment for myself. I’ve found the way to do that is by helping dogs.
I moved from a place of constant stress, worry, blame culture, chasing unimportant and unreasonable deadlines and jumping through hoops to living a happier, fulfilled life where I control my destiny knowing what I do really does matter.
I believe that a kinder, safer, happier world starts with happier, healthier people and animals and that all animals deserve a world-class health service.
So I help dog owners go from feeling helpless, anxious, and worried about their dog’s physical health and well-being to feeling confident, encouraged, and happy that their dog has their mojo back, by offering them massage and rehabilitation treatments and simple, effective core conditioning and fitness programmes.

I wouldn’t hesitate for a second to take a dog of my own to Angela for treatment (and I specialised in orthopaedic surgery for 3 years before becoming a holistic vet!).
If you have a pet with a musculoskeletal problem, I suggest you ask your vet for a referral to Angela”
