Professional Practice

Experience in Club, FE, HE and High Performance environments, being part of and leading multidisciplinary teams

Expertise: Horizontal Jumps, Strength and Speed development

I am a UKSCA Accredited Strength & Conditioning Coach, Qualified Sports Massage Therapist and Licensed Athletics Coach – Specialising in Horizontal Jumps and Sprints. Providing academic underpinning I have an undergraduate degree in sports science and coaching. I have learned to apply theory to practice through various mentorships and coach education programmes; including self-funded travel to Phoenix, AZ to attend the ALTIS Apprentice Coach Programme, and a coach-athlete selection to be a part of the EIS Tokyo 2020 Transition Programme.  

My coaching record includes successful development of athletes to achieve national medals and junior & senior international selections in able-bodied and disability athletics. As an assistant coach I have worked for extended periods with sprinters at a senior level who regularly achieve international selection and medals. 

Professional Interests

  • Technical elements of the Long & Triple Jump

  • All sports youth athletic development & performance pathways

  • Human movement & skill acquisition

  • The importance and influence of the Coach-Athlete Relationship

  • Coach education models

Professional Ambitions

  • To one day be recognised as a world leading horizontal jumps coach and contributor

  • To build an independent all sports performance pathway offering accessible and cohesive coaching, support and medical services to developing athletes

As a practitioner I like to have the flexibility to work both independently and as part of a team -working on multiple projects at once.
