Brief Sporting History:

I am a member of my local Triathlon Club, concentrating on the disciplines of swimming and cycling. I enjoy open water swimming participating in events and continue to brave the elements throughout the winter months. I have entered Aqua Bikes and Cycle Sportives.

Having always swam regularly and taught swimming in the past the move to the Triathlon disciplines followed many years of playing hockey. As a qualified hockey umpire I occasionally umpire matches. I have in the past taken on a number of roles within hockey clubs and appreciate the time, energy and commitment that volunteers bring to their sports clubs.

Areas of Expertise:

I have over 25 years experience in sport, leisure and community development working across a range of public, private and voluntary settings. I have experience of working for an NGB (National Governing Body) and currently work as an independent sport and leisure consultant.
