Job Role: Provide strategic leadership to secure system change for Physical activity and sport across the lifecourse; Start Well, Develop Well, Live Well, Age Well.

Date joined: May 2014

Professional background: After graduating with a degree in Sports Management, my career began at Ribble Valley Borough Council as a Community Sports Officer. I always wanted to experience living in a different country so I went to work in America for a year as a Club Coach & Camp Director for Challenger Sports, which gave me the opportunity to work in many parts of America. When I returned I joined Manchester County Football Association for 7 years, starting as Women/Girls Football Development Officer and progressing to Senior Football Development Officer. From there I joined GreaterSport as a Development Manager, and am still thriving and enjoying the challenge of working in Greater Manchester to get people active!!
