I have always been passionate about sports and from a young age I played a number of sports, including football, cricket and swimming. Having the opportunity to represent my county on a number of occasions.
My sporting interests stretched further, and in 2010 I graduated from the University of Derby with a degree in Outdoor Activities Management. I worked in the industry as a water sports instructor for two years before returning to mainstream sport as a basketball coach in 2011.
After gaining valuable experience by coaching both football and basketball over many years, I decided to transfer my skills to teaching and in 2015 obtained my Diploma in Education and Teaching through Warwick University.
