Moira has worked as a physiotherapist in acute and rehabilitation hospitals in Scotland specialising in neurology.  A key focus of her practice involved working in a specialised Brain Injury Rehabilitation Centre where she worked with individuals who had complex needs following acquired brain injury. In 2013, Moira moved into teaching at James Cook University where she currently teaches into the Bachelor of Physiotherapy and co-ordinates the Master of Rehabilitation course.

Moira's key area of interest is neurological rehabilitation - particularly in the areas of acquired brain injury and multiple sclerosis. Currently a PhD candidate at JCU, Moira is studying exercise and high-level mobility in individuals with multiple sclerosis.
