After qualifying from Manchester Royal Infirmary School of Physiotherapy in 1971, Jane initially specialised in paediatrics, working in The Lake District and Surrey. In 1984 she started in private practice and it was then that Jane began treating patients with continence problems. In 1996 she completed the Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Women’s’ Health Post-graduate Continence Course. In 2005 Jane completed the Independent and Supplementary Prescribing course at Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge and was one of only a few Women’s Health Supplementary Prescribers at that time. Jane 's last clinical post was as an Advanced Practitioner Physiotherapist in Women’s and Men’s Health, and In-Patient Clinical Lead at Progress, the Cambridge Centre for Health and Performance, part of the Spire Cambridge Lea Hospital, Cambridge, UK.
She retired from clinical practice in June 2015, but continues her teaching role. Her specialist areas are bladder and bowel dysfunction, conservative management of male problems, pelvic floor scanning, and chronic pelvic pain.
In 2002, Jane began using real-time ultrasound to assess and treat pelvic floor dysfunction. She lectures nationally and internationally on this topic, and regularly runs teaching courses. She is the co-founder and secretary of the Dynamic Ultrasound Group of Physiotherapists (DUG) which has now merged with ACPIE to form EPADU, the Electrophysical Agents and Dynamic Ultrasound Group of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy. Jane was Vice-Chairman of CPPC, Chartered Physiotherapists Promoting Continence, until its merger with ACPWH to form POGP, Pelvic, Obstetric, Gynaecological Physiotherapy.
Currently Jane is the Affiliate Member representative on the ACPGBI Executive Committee. She is also a Trustee/Director of the Bladder and Bowel Foundation charity.
In 2012 the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy recognised Jane's contribution to pelvic floor dysfunction in physiotherapy and awarded her a Fellowship.
