Carol Attwood

Receptionist

 

Carol originally trained as an illustrator & designer and is from a creative background. This makes her an excellent problem solver - prefect for answering queries and sorting out insurance. After seeking treatment for chronic back pain she became increasingly interested in how osteopathy, acupuncture, physiotherapy and lifestyle changes could improve her health and well being.  Carol has now worked as a senior receptionist in multi disciplinary health clinics for over 10 years. Married with grown up children, Carol’s free time is taken up with gardening, fitness yoga and drawing.
