Since as long as I can remember sport and competing has always played a big part in my life. At school I used to swim for the
county and in my 20’s my new
passion became running. After
entering my first 10k race I was
delighted to finish second in the competition. I continued racing 10k events and half marathons, almost always placing in the top 3.
The next challenge was to compete in a marathon and not just complete, but to do well, and again I crossed the finish line as fourth female.

I began spending more time training in the gym and decided to take advantage of the lifestyle I passionately loved
and make it my full time career, training as an Advanced Personal Trainer and Nutrition Specialist.
This would also enable me to
help others overcome their health and fitness challenges and achieve their goals.
After years of dedicated training, my physique began to resemble that of the IFBB Figure Pros – prompting me to think about competing myself. I first stepped on stage in 2006 to compete in the toned figure class and was delighted to win the category. The following year I decided to compete under UKBFF Bodyfitness,a more glamorous and recognised organisation - this was my breakthrough moment,achieving first place at the North East Championships, then one month later achieving third place at the British Championship Finals.

In 2008 I achieved exactly the same results, first place in the qualifier and third place at the Nationals.
Following some changes to my training techniques and seeking valuable advice from others I stepped back on stage in 2011 achieving my best body shape to date placing first a the Muscletalk Championships.  This took me once again to the British finals where I was awarded second place and qualified to compete for Britain at the World Championships in 2012.

I have met some exceptional people along the way and passing my knowledge and dedication towards fitness, nutrition and wellbeing to clients has become extremely rewarding, seeing them also transform their body and lifestyle with outstanding results.
