Date joined: November 2009
Professional background: I graduated with a degree in Recreation Management in 2003. I then went on to work abroad in both Japan and Spain before pursuing my career in sport and physical activity. I started as a school sports coach in Liverpool, before moving to GreaterSport in 2009 as Basketball Development Officer. Since then I have held a number of positions including, Coach Development Manager, Workforce Lead and most recently the Strategic Lead for the Local Pilot.
Fun fact: I once did a bungee jump over TGI Fridays car park in Leeds, as part of a bet with my university housemates.
