Qualifications: BA Honours Degree in Sports Development, A Level One, Fundamentals Of Movement.
Career Overview: Since graduating I have built my experience of teaching and coaching in lots of different settings from nurseries through to colleges. I have worked as a TA and a full time coach at AFC Fylde Football Club, delivering across a plethora of different sports. In that time I have enjoyed management and lead roles for two Football Development Centres, EYFS, Recruitment and Partnership as well as Youth Club Lead. I joined Ashbridge January 2020 as their full time P.E and Sports Coach.
Professional Interests: Early Years and foundation learning is something that I relish where given the opportunity, as I love to help mould and inspire children as young as three into any sports and activities. Football and athletics both in the education and outside of the school setting is something I have always been involved with, participating and coaching, both as a profession and a volunteer. I enjoy learning new things and I still look to improve and progress as a student of the sporting industry at every opportunity.
Personal Interests: I am the volunteer manager of a junior football club based in Preston and also volunteer at a youth club in Savick and Larches. Working with young aspiring participants and athletes is how I enjoy my evenings, and weekend mornings. One evening a week I currently work at a local spa hotel and every week I play for a local football team, who I have been for six seasons. I like to spend time outside as often as possible; and enjoy visiting the Lake District amongst other areas. I enjoy climbing, hiking and just generally being active. I support Newcastle United due to my Father being from the North East, and enjoy going up to see family and football when I can.
