I have lived and worked in Yemen, Brazil and Tanzania (currently UK based). I compete in Triathlons including ironman distance, and have competed as an Age Group Triathlete for Great Britain in the European Championshps 2016. I am interested in how sport can be used as a tool for development, social inclusion and general emotional and physical well-being globally - particularly in cultures where engaging in sport is not the norm. When living abroad I have taught English (Tanzania and Yemen) and worked with a street children project (Brazil).
I am a Level 2 Triathlon Coach with the British Triathlon Federation, and I currently coach 3x a week for a junior triathlon club, and a junior running club. When living in Yemen I regulary encouraged local women to engage in physical activity, including mountain walking and attending a gym.
