Beata Qualified Physiotherapist Whilst studying Physiotherapy I worked as a PA with people with spinal cord injury and Muscular Dystrophy. This gave me invaluable experience and an understanding of challenges that clients face in their own home. It also gave me an opportunity to see how professionals work together in the community. The PA experience enabled me to find a direction in my career and I am now working as a Care Service Manager for Active Assistance which I find to be a fulfilling and rewarding professional practice.
