My passion for science, health and exercise began at a young age. After school I went on to study Biology at the University of Leeds, which led me to a career in medical communications. I spent 10 years working for communications agencies in London on behalf of pharmaceutical clients, communicating and educating different audiences about a number of diseases and treatments.
Following my cancer diagnosis my priorities changed. I didn't want to commute anymore and I felt alive being outside. So I decided to do something I felt extremely passionate about and help others in the process. I have always loved sport, and find exercise gives me the time and space to think and focus. So I retrained as a Personal Trainer and Exercise Rehabilitation Specialist aiming to help others use exercise to support them through major life events such as illness or loss.
