Read more about our brave new team member:
Health and fitness have always been a passion of mine since childhood. I enjoyed various sports including football, taekwondo, biking and swimming. Creating my own healthy recipes was another hobby of mine.
Later I studied Nutrition, Health and Lifestyles at university. Sharing my passion for health and fitness with others has always been such a rewarding experience, represented in previous job roles including Fitness Instructor, Healthy Lifestyle Specialist, Nutritionist, Locality Coach, Diabetes Educator as well as being a Yoga Teacher.
As a Livewell Advisor I lead healthy lifestyle sessions including exercise and healthy eating to groups within the community. I also support clients to stop smoking. Seeing clients grow in confidence, as well as adapting their lifestyles provides great fulfilment throughout the job role.
Me in 3 words
Bubbly, adventurous as well as welcoming!
My Favourite Meal
There’s too many to choose…. but I love roasted vegetables, sweet potato wedges with grilled salmon and a dash of balsamic vinegar (I have this with literally everything!)
I love the outdoors! Most weekends you will find me somewhere in the Peak District either hiking or biking! I also enjoy climbing and recently completed a lead climbing course which is so much fun as well as being super scary! I practice yoga daily as well as meditation.
Other hobbies include jogging, wild swimming, salsa dancing, going to hippy festivals as well as spending time with friends and family. I also love adventures, travelling and hiking in different places, especially staying in hostels!
My Best Achievement
Hiking Tour Du Mont Blanc recently, a massive challenge but well worth the pain for the stunning views.
What you might be surprised to hear about me
I have a blue belt, red tag in Taekwondo (nearly black belt) not quite though!
