I began my career in the Royal Navy as a Clearance Diver which involved blowing things up such as old mines and working on ships and submarines. The Navy was great in many ways but in particular that there were lots of opportunities to travel to exotic places and meet interesting people, also to take part in different sports, adventures and physical activity. My next career port of call was to explore my passion for health, fitness and education and become a tutor and assessor for fitness industry qualifications, also delivering group exercise and one to one training sessions to people of all ages and abilities. Working in the education sector has allowed me to meet many passionate and creative people who have affected and inspired me.
I am a Livewell advisor providing advice, support and motivation to people on their journey to a healthier, more active and fulfilling lifestyle.
Me in three words
Positive, Fun, Friendly
Tapas next to the Mediterranean.
I love to cook, listen and go to live music events and travel. Exercise and activity are also a big part of my life, in particular callisthenics, cycling and running.
It’s a close run thing but raising two happy and healthy kids wins out over completing the Royal Navy diver course!
