A performance consultant with a portfolio ranging from people development to quality assurance processes, I am an experienced Sports Scientist by trade, with 20+ years’ experience in the high performance sport industry. That means I’m right at home when talking to athletes and coaches and spending time watching Sport - my favourite pastime!
I have been at the heart of the UK high performance sport system since 1999 where I delivered roles as a Technical Lead at the English Institute of Sport and enjoyed front line senior physiologist roles for British Rowing (2007-2016) and GB Badminton (in the lead up to Athens Olympics). Having worked with a variety of sports from team, racket and endurance, I have excellent first-hand experience of being a practitioner in high performance sport and leading developing practitioners in such environments.
I have a professional doctorate in recovery, specifically, sleep and downtime, and a special interest in developing practitioners within the high performance sport arena, where I have extensive experience in developing frameworks for young practitioners and supervising individuals through British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences (BASES) Accreditation processes. So, my experiences in performance sport are varied; from leading and managing sports science teams and bespoke laboratories, to project management and delivery to world class clients.
I am a member of the British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences, having been High Performance Sport Accredited since 2012. I sit on the BASES Accreditation Committee, and am a laboratory accreditation reviewer (BASES Laboratory Accreditation). I am an associate of Switch the Play, a social enterprise dedicated to improving the support offered to elite and aspiring athletes and players as they transition to a life outside of sport. Also, I am an Advisory Board member to Harper Performance CIC, a certified non-profit social enterprise providing performance-support services and consultancy to aspirational athletes, teams and sports organisations across the world. I am also a National Trainer for UK Anti Doping and associate with Bourne Sports Medicine and Switch the Play.
