Zillah serves as a Physiotherapist at the Mbarara University of Science and Technology, working alongside national colleagues in treatment, training and discipleship.
In 2009 Zillah moved to Mbarara, Uganda to work as a physiotherapist with the local AIM team based there. The team has a vision of participating with the local church in discipleship, particularly through the fields of education, healthcare and community development. As such, Zillah’s work has been divided between the local government hospital and university. The hospital had an already active Physiotherapy department which had been developing a vision to start the first physiotherapy degree programme in Uganda at Mbarara University of Science and Technology. Zillah helped them in this endeavour and participated in the excitement of the course starting, with its first intake of students in August 2012. Now, her role is a mix of teaching and caring. She assists with the administration of the Physiotherapy course at the university and delivers lectures to physiotherapy, medical and nursing students. Her physio work has continued too, as she treats patients in the hospital.
