Megan Williams

MPhil BSc (Hons) (SW) MSST LCGI

Megan qualified from the University of Hertfordshire with a first class honours degree in Sports Therapy. She went on to complete an MSc by Research; the work she completed was of such a high standard that the qualification was upgraded to a Master of Philosophy when examined. Her research involved the investigation of exercise rehabilitation and the biomechanics surrounding lower limb injuries, encompassing ligament sprains, muscular imbalances and post-surgical intervention. Megan is in the process of publishing her research findings and they have been presented at conferences around the UK.

Experience

She has worked in a private clinic for a number of years, as well as providing injury treatment throughout an array of sports, ranging from rugby to trampolining. More specifically, Megan has spent time at the National Athletics Championships, London Wasps RFU, a London dance injury clinic, the London Marathon and a Volleyball England tournament. Spending a season with Hemel Storm Basketball Team allowed Megan to work with ex-GB coaches and players, providing injury diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation at training sessions and matches. Megan currently oversees all of the sports injury treatment and rehabilitation with the students and staff at The Leys.

Lecturing

In addition to all of this, Megan works as a visiting lecturer at the University of Bedfordshire and the University of Hertfordshire. She has previously taught modules including anatomy, biomechanics and exercise rehabilitation, as well as examining the students during their degree programme. Megan was also a qualified first aid tutor; she provided these courses as well as sports injury enrichment sessions to Cambridge sixth formers to enhance their CV’s and provide them with an insight into such a profession.

Sport

Megan was dance trained from the age of three, competing in festivals and competitions over the years. She also had the privilege of being taught by Wayne Sleep, former Principal Dancer at The Royal Ballet. Currently, she has a great interest in strength work and building regular weights sessions into her schedule.
