Originally from Cheltenham, I’ve just moved down to live in Cranleigh, Surrey to explore opportunities elsewhere – I love it here! Having started coaching football at the age of 15, I found a passion for it and attended Cardiff Metropolitan University where I achieved a 2:1 degree in Sports Coaching.
Having completed my degree, I managed to find a job coaching multiple sports around primary schools in Gloucestershire. This job was extremely enjoyable and reaffirmed my belief that developing children within sport was my career path. My next opportunity came from TUI where I was employed as a football coach in a large-scale hotel in Ibiza and Mallorca respectively. This job was fantastic and really helped me improve as a coach and a person – football is massive part of my life and the opportunity to coach abroad was incredible.
During my second year at TUI I received a promotion to Academies Team Leader which really pushed me and enabled me to grow as coach, as well as pass on knowledge to the next generation of coaches following me. I am now part of Ultimate Coaching and cannot wait to help the company within the office and on the training pitch…see you out there!
