About Me

I qualified in 2005 with a BTEC level 4 Diploma in Sports and Remedial Massage from the London School of Sports Massage (LSSM). Since establishing myself in the Warwick, Kenilworth, Leamington Spa and Stratford-upon-Avon areas I have treated a variety of sports people of all levels, from local amateur runner to Olympic open water swimmer.

Between 2007 and 2010 I worked voluntarily for the British Triathlon Federation (BTF) at the European and World Triathlon Long Course Championships in Belgium and Holland as well as the World Duathlon Championships in Edinburgh. In 2012 I worked as a Sports Massage Practitioner at Hyde Park, Hampton Court Palace and The Mall as part of a multi-disciplinary team at the London Olympics.

In conjunction with operating a small business and sports massage event work, I attained a distinction from Coventry University in Sport, Exercise and Therapy Science Higher National Diploma (HND). More recently I achieved a 2:1 BSc (Hons) Degree in Sports Therapy from Birmingham University.

I am a member of the Institute of Sport and Remedial Massage (ISRM).

 

Training & Racing

2017 - After an unusually consistent year, I was able to complete my main focus which was the Half Brutal Triathlon in Llanberis. Finishing mid pack I was happy with my performance. I look forward to training for next year's events.

2018 - This year began with a trail half marathon at Coed y Brenin mountain bike centre. Covering the Salomon Trail Marathon route the going was tough with rain/snow and temperature of 1 degree. This was my C-race of 2018.

The B-race of 2018 began in the Heddon Valley on Exmoor. With over 5,500ft of climbing, this offroad trail marathon race was brutal yet beautiful. Rain, fog and muddy conditions made the going tough.
