After completing my BSc in Sports Therapy at the University of Edge Hill I had a year off from the sports and fitness industry, this is due to the intense nature of the degree I did. During this year I worked in a busy Estate Agents office in Stratford-upon-Avon, During this time I realized my passion for fitness and helping people. So I enrolled on a personal training course and learnt all I could and I’m continuing to learn about nutrition, the human body and training methods today.
“Working in an estate agents means I have an understanding of how the office life works and pressures you can be under and the effect it has on you.”
After completing the course I took a job at Walton Hall Leisure club. After a few months here I become the lead trainer and had the largest client base at the club. This lead me to being too busy to work for Walton Hall which lead to me becoming self employed and working with my clients at their homes or at a Health Works Fitness Studio in Stratford-upon-Avon.

Her dissertation was obesity focused, and explored effects of obesity on type II diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease and Cardiovascular development.

“It was about eleven years ago, when I was thirteen. My youngest brother, who has unfortunately had many health challenges, went to see a nutritional therapist. She suggested some dietary changes, and I excitedly got on board. Soon after I read a wonderful book called “The Maker’s Diet” by Jordan S. Rubin. Jordan was chronically ill with IBD, but was able to regain his health through nutrition. This knowledge of nutrition proved useful, both in supporting my brother and also my dad, who has type II diabetes.”
