    I went to Leeds Beckett university and qualified with a BSC in Sport and Exercise Science and used this to work with the community in One You Leeds.

    Manage Your Weight and Eat Better

    The best part of my job for me is helping people to understand that fad diets are not necessary to lose weight. It’s key for me to support them in changing a negative narrative and language around food and eating habits too. Outside of work I can often be found running across muddy woodland trails and hills or cycling on and off road. I have recently got into gardening and I am looking forward to growing sunflowers and various veg in Spring.
