As a very active and energetic child, I was always very good at all sports but never excelled one. After receiving a sports scholarship to one of Britain’s most prestigious boarding schools, I went on to play football for York Ladies FC from the ages 14-18, captained the school hockey and netball teams, and competed in my favourite discipline, cross country.
I loved sport and always knew I would end up making it my career. After moving to London, I qualified as a Strength and Conditioning coach and Personal Trainer in 2012. Soon after, my passion for Triathlon was discovered; Ironman Triathlon in particular. I went on to compete in Ironman from 2012, and in my first race I qualified for the Hawaii World Championships, in which I ended up finishing 5th in my age group. 2014 was the year I really came into my own, qualifying for both 70.3 worlds and Hawaii. I went on to finish 2nd in my age group (25-29) and 31st overall, with the fastest female amateur bike split of the day. After learning how to swim and bike in 2012, I have come a long way in a short space of time, so the future and journey ahead will hopefully prove an exciting one for me. It has not been easy, that is for sure, but hard work always pays off.
When I realised Triathlon was everything I wanted to be involved in, I decided to help others in the sport. I have since taken qualifications to be a Triathlon coach. Bringing Strength and Conditioning, Pilates, and now coaching to the table, I am very excited to see where this journey takes me. At 26, I still have a long road ahead…
