PROFILE

I was born and raised in Cheltenham, where I spent my school years at Cheltenham Bournside School and Sixth Form Centre. I filled all my spare time doing every sport possible (master of none), mainly concentrating in Athletics and Hockey. If I wasn't out playing in sport, from a 'sensible' age, I was found partying and living a fab social life. Then school ended and it was time to make some 'grown up' decisions.

I managed to knuckle down in sixth form, and get the grades for University. I graduated from the University of Birmingham, gaining a First Classification with Hons, in 2008. This is where I found and fell in love with rowing, gaining multiple GB University Medals. Uni passed quickly, and through rowing I was inspired to be an Elite athlete.

 

In 2009 I tested on the Girls For Gold Initiative by UK Sport (to find future Olympians), and from here was selected onto the GB Rowing World Class Start system. A successful career ended in multiple rib-stress fractures and like most, fell into Triathlon through a friend suggesting a Half Ironman, then a full (IM Bolton in 2011) for charity. I quickly gained the 'tri bug' and switched sports in 2012. Going 'Pro' was always the aim, and in 2015 after winning the European AG Championships and coming 2nd overall (as an Ager at IM Wimbleball 70.3) in 2014, I felt like I was ready to make the jump into Pro life in 2015.
