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!

ABOUT ME

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

Health and fitness has been a key part of my life from a young age. I am lucky enough to have ridden horses for as long as I can remember, there is nothing better than being outside in nature doing a sport you love. For me sport is a form of relaxation, a time to switch off from everyday life, and sometimes a way to push yourself out of your comfort zone. There is nothing better than the feeling of achievement after completing a physical challenge. The Daily Mile is such an amazing way to empower young children, to get moving and have fun while being active in such a positive, supportive environment.
