Job title: Development Officer (Workforce and Community Champions)
Job role: My role is to work with a wide range of workforces and communities to create a social movement for walking that will help to reduce healthcare costs and improve the overall health and wellbeing of our population.
Date joined GreaterSport: August 2019
Professional background: I have had a varied professional background, including teaching in Spain and working as an investigator for both the General Medical Council and the Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman. Around 18 months ago I began volunteering for a charity which harnesses the benefits of running and fitness to transform the lives of young people experiencing homelessness. This led me to wish to pursue a career in physical activity and health promotion; which in turn led to my move to GreaterSport.
Fun fact: I once met the boxer Evander Holyfield in McDonalds in Nice. His entourage told me I wasn’t allowed to tell anybody that “the champ” was ordering Chicken McNuggets. So if anyone asks, he ordered a Filet O’Fish.
