Rebecca Warnett


School of Life Sciences and Education

I graduated from the Sports Therapy degree at Staffordshire University in July 2014. Since graduating I worked with Burton Albion Ladies F.C as their First Team Sports Therapist. I provided emergency pitch side cover and treated players with a range of different injuries. For the 2015/2016 season I have been promoted to Head of Medical at the club where my responsibilities are the care and treatment of 3 senior sides and the management of 5 Sports Therapists.

From graduating I set up a Sports Therapy Clinic (Warnett Sports Therapy) based in the area and I currently have 3 therapists working there who are Staffordshire Graduates.

In January 2015 I started as a teaching assistant at the University, took on the clinic supervisor role which led into my current position as a lecturer in Sports Therapy.
