Job role: To promote and support the strong growth of The Daily MileTM in primary schools across Greater Manchester and thus strengthen the vision and blueprint of both The Daily Mile strategy and GM Moving. My working days are all day Tuesday, and Wednesday and Thursday afternoons.
Date joined: October 2020
Professional background: After gaining my degree and PGCE at Loughborough, I taught PE for 4 years in Surrey, before taking a 6 month trip to travel around the world. I landed back in my home town of Manchester and become a School Sport Coordinator, supporting schools and teachers to improve children’s access to high quality PE, school sport and physical activity. Alongside my work with GreaterSport and The Daily Mile I also run Dance to School, providing resources and CPD to support the delivery of dance in schools.
Fun Fact: I’m a terrible runner, but have completed the London Marathon, and annually complete the Salford Triathlon (very slowly!)
