I studied a Master’s degree in Sport, Physical Activity and Mental Health as well as my undergraduate degree, which was Sports Development. During my time at university, I ran many sporting/tennis events and have over 400 hours volunteering experience working with a wide range of stakeholders which broadened my career pathway.

Currently I am the head tennis coach at nine tennis clubs in the North of England, where I am coaching children from the age of three years old all the way up to adults aged eighty-nine years old (currently IFT ranked 7th for her age in the world), all varying in standards from total beginner to advanced university players.

I have very good organisational skills as a tennis coach, successfully coaching as many people as I can in an effective manner, with my aim being to create amazing fun experiences for all. I have a very wide range of sporting qualifications which has helped me to develop as a coach and get better everyday. I have coached at two high performance tennis centres in the North of England.
