Q: University?

A: I graduated from the University of Nottingham in 2013 with a first class honours degree in Physiotherapy. Four years later I completed my Level 3 Personal Training qualification.

Q: What do you love about your job?

A: I have always been passionate about sport and fitness ever since I was child, so the chance to work in that field every day is amazing. In my career as a physio and now a personal trainer, I have loved setting goals with clients and helping them on their journey. Together I genuinely believe, with hard work and dedication, we can change people’s live for the better.

Q: Special interest?

A: I love working with all clients, but over the years I have specialised in helping those with pre-existing conditions and injuries. Due to my physio background, I have been able to transform people who have been suffering with injury to thriving at life!

Q: Most proudest achievement?

A: Given the pain involved, I am tempted to say running the London Marathon, but I think climbing Mount Kilimanjaro just pips it. I achieved that feat back in 2014 as I, and a group of 19 Type-1 Diabetics, teamed up to take on the challenge of climbing the highest single free-standing mountain in the world.

Q: What do I do at the weekends?

A: At the weekend you can find me gracing the astro of Bedford Hockey club! Failing that I’ll be smashing lengths in the pool or reps in the gym. I’ve even taken up golf recently, which I can confirm is as hard as it looks! I love socialising with friends and family or a quiet Friday night in with a takeaway and my fiancé, Simon.

Q: One item to take to a dessert island?

A: I am not sure if he counts as an item, but I’d like to take my fiancé, Simon please! As cheesy as it sounds, I am never bored when I am around him and time flies by. I feel like that would be quite important on the island. The only issue is he is more Mary Berry than Bear Grylls, so we would definitely be sleeping rough.
