Get to know me

I served as an officer in the Royal Navy and currently work as a Sports & Uniformed Services Lecturer in a Further Education College on the South Coast of England.

I qualified as a Pilates Instructor through the Armed Forces Enhance Learning Credit (ELC) scheme with Future Fit.

Alongside my full-time role in physical education, I run a charity that delivers health and well-being to Armed Forces veterans and families; we recently increased our support network to include NHS and healthcare staff in light of their exceptional service during the COVID pandemic and the increasing demands on the National Health Service.

I deliver a variety of different fitness volunteer-led fitness classes in three towns along the Dorset Coast. The classes include mat-based Pilates, circuit training and other instructor-led classes that are part-funded by sponsors, fundraising events and charitable grants. The aim is to enable professional healthcare staff to exercise between unpredictable shift patterns and help the workforce build physical and mental resilience.

Take Continuous Professional Development seriously. It is important for me because it has helped me to become more creative and it enables me to deliver a variety of classes - offering something new and exciting keeps my clients interested.
