ABOUT ME

As a very keen sportswoman, I am extremely lucky to have had the opportunity to combine my university degree and my passion for health & sports with a career that has spanned over 10 years. From playing National league hockey, to a key member of Team GB's 2012 world-leading Olympic Performance Team, to delivering major contracts at the Rugby World Cup, sport & fitness has always been at the heart of everything I do. I am excited and proud to be a core member of the Daily Mile team as their Brand & Communications Manager and hope that we can help health & fitness becomes a big part of the daily lives of more children around the world.

I am passionate about sport and physical activity and am totally committed to the important part it must play in improving the health of the nation. I am grateful to have been brought up in an active family where sport played a significant part of my life and also that I have been fortunate to have developed a career in sport and physical activity over the last 20 years. I look forward to working with partners across Scotland to deliver on the Scottish Government’s ambition of becoming the first Daily Mile Nation.

ABOUT ME

Sport has always been a massive part of my life and I appreciate the immense value of exercise on many different levels: a stress-buster, a social platform, fitness and all-round well-being. I have been lucky enough to participate in a number of big sporting events in recent years and the buzz which I take away from these has inspired me to provide children with this opportunity – The Daily Mile is the perfect way to get children active and involved from a young age!
