A bit about me

I have been coaching athletes at a national level for the last 5 years, helping them achieve their goals from the 800m up to the Marathon on the track, road and cross country circuit. 

My own running journey began when I was 11 and competed in the South Yorkshire school's cross country race. It took some convincing, as during my early career I was a passionate swimmer, but I joined Doncaster AC at 13 and immediately fell in love with the sport, always hungry to perform at my best and learn more about the sport. 


Since then I have had a journey full of ups and downs with my highlights being 2023 England bronze medallist over 1500m and toeing the line at my first Indoor British Championships over the same distance in 2024.

Coaching philosophy

My coaching has been influenced by my own experience as an athlete and shaped by my time working in a performance gym where I worked with athletes across a spectrum of sports and varied abilities to develop their strength, condition their bodies and recover from injury. 

Coaching for me is about creating a safe space to come together to find belonging, connection and confidence. I believe in curating programmes collaboratively, with open communication and honest feedback from both coach and athlete. This way, your training plan can align with your goals, empower you to seek out what your body is truly capable of and fit around your life, all completely individualised.
