Glenn is our beloved practice manager and is never to be seen without his sense of humour, unless the coffee machine or computers are broken.  He has been an essential part of the Therapy for Life team since its second year and has worked closely with Laura to see it grow throughout its various stages. He has enabled the technological progress we have needed when running the practice in multiple locations.
