A Bit About Me

Coaching Qualifications:

Working towards Level 2 Rhythmic

Level 2 General

Level 1 Trampoline 


I first qualified as a coach in 2016 having volunteered for several years and joined SEGC in 2017 where have gained experience and coaching qualifications across various disciplines. 


I gained sport science diplomas in both school and college before undertaking the Royal Foundation’s Coach Core programme shortly after I joined SEGC. 


In 2019, I was appointed as Assistant Head of Gymschool but as my passion lies in rhythmic gymnastics I decided to specialise and was appointed as Assistant Head of Rhythmic in 2021. 


My responsibilities include overseeing all rhythmic recreational classes and progressing both development and club squads. 


I retired as a competitive rhythmic gymnast in 2023, having achieved over 30 national titles, making me the most decorated gymnast in my category and had been a member of the former GBR National Disability Rhythmic Squad. Since 2020, I have been an athlete representative on British Gymnastics’ Disability Gymnastic Panel to advocate inclusion.
