• Years attending Terenure College?

Started in the Junior School in 2003 and left Secondary in 2013.

  • Current company and position?

I have recently set up my own business – Rehabilitation and Performance Initiative Dublin (RAPID) – which is a physiotherapy and sports medicine clinic.

  • Tell us about your business… [20] words or less

RAPID is a sports medicine clinic which integrates physiotherapy with strength and conditioning, to thoroughly rehabilitate clients from initial injury to elite performance.

  • How did you get your idea or concept for the business?

I’ve always dreamt of working for myself and running my own business. Having worked at the Sports Surgery Clinic in Santry,  worked for a year over in Austin, Texas and then completed my Masters in Sports and Exercise Medicine,  I felt that now was the time to set up my own clinic.

  • Favourite Terenure College memory?

There are far too many great memories to single out just one! Winning a Junior Cup in 2010 was definitely a huge highlight.

  • Have you found the Terenure College community was a benefit to you inyour career? Example?

Extremely. I’m only set up a couple of months but already I’ve had great support, custom and advice from members of the Terenure College community, from helping to spread the word to helping me get set up – it’s been greatly appreciated!

  • If you were Minister for Finance for a day what change would you make?

I’d review the taxation structure for mega tech companies in Ireland, call Apple’s unpaid tax due and redistribute it to the small businesses hardest hit over the past year.

  • What’s an interesting fact people may not know about you?

I mentioned it above – but I spent a year living in Austin, at the heart of Texas. I was also a proud Young Scientist in 2011 for Terenure College!

  • If you had one piece of advice to someone just starting out, what would it be?

I’m probably not in much of a position to give that kind of advice just yet as I’ve only started myself! But for anyone on the fence about starting out, I would say get started, back yourself, and don’t be too shy or afraid to ask for help and advice. People are more than happy to help!

  • How can people best access you and your business?

Through the website – www.rapid.ie – from there you can learn more about the business and can book an appointment if needed. I’m located at the Walkinstown Roundabout which is easily accessible for a lot of the Terenure College community.
