I began my career in fitness 25 years ago and have been teaching exercise ever since. In 2000 I completed a Certificate in Education and Training in the Post Compulsory Sector. Two years later I graduated from the University of Huddersfield with a First Class Honours degree in Health and Sports Studies.
I was awarded a Post Graduate Diploma in Social Evaluation and Research in 2009 and am currently completing a PhD in the context of physical activity and health. I have also been a Senior Lecturer in Exercise Physical Activity and Health at the University of Huddersfield.
I discovered Zumba in 2009 and instantly fell in love with the dances and the format of Zumba. I trained as an instructor later that year and since then have been teaching classes in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire. In 2010 I qualified in Zumba Basics Level Two, Zumba Gold and Zumba Toning.
I am a qualified exercise to music instructor, fitness assessment and exercise counsellor, nutrition and weight management advisor, fitness teacher of older adults, resistance & circuit training instructor, and fitness assessor.
In October 2016 I've launched Kick Start Fat Loss Huddersfield a revolutionary new diet club to help you lose weight and improve your health fast. I'm really excited about this, as I've felt that nutrition and health has been a missing part of tALk active's offering.
