She has worked with a variety of organisations, athletes and teams, at a range of levels and ages in the UK.  Including the Sport Scotland Institute of sport and The University of St. Andrews.

Along her journey, she has also utilised her skills in different areas of the industry such as Health & Fitness, whereby she has created, developed and delivered education for fitness professionals.

Her role at Gloucestershire university combines the skills she has gained over the years enabling her to expand her knowledge in the field and develop her experience through research.
