I reignited my passion for swimming when I trained to be a Lifeguard at 17. Throughout University I played Waterpolo and swam regularly. In my final year of study I achieved a place on the Waterpolo committee.
Recently I have started competing in open water swims. Starting with the Great North Swim I found open water swimming to be exhilarating and challenging! Since then I have continued to compete in the Great North Swim and Epic Swim events in the Lake District.
I believe everyone should have the opportunity to learn to swim, to teach a life skill and develop a swimmers technique something I feel very privileged doing. I am as enthusiastic now as when I first started teaching swimming 10 years ago.
My other interests include following Liverpool Football Club for which I have a Season Ticket.
