I studied for my undergraduate degree in coaching and physical education at The University College of St. Mark & St. John in Plymouth and completed my postgraduate certificate in education in physical education at The University of Gloucestershire. I have been teaching for a total of six years, with five years at Archway Secondary School in Stroud, Gloucestershire. Away from physical education, I am a qualified literacy teacher through a programme/company called "Sound Training for Reading."
I was born in Barnstaple, England where I grew up with my mum, dad and two older brothers. I enjoy playing soccer and have played competitively since I was 10 years old, and I have more recently started getting into golf. Ultimately, I love watching (Liverpool fan) and playing all sports and will get involved at every opportunity. I look forward to supporting the Chicago Bears, Bulls and Fire when I have the chance. I enjoy socializing with friends and family, going to the cinema (I am a bit of a Marvel comic nerd!) and I also love to eat!
