I am an extremely driven individual and strive to achieve in anything I do. I have a passion for sport performance and have a strong background of football coaching and wish to pursue a career that involves working closely with athletes.

I have been playing football for 20 years and have coached for just over 10 years. My coaching experience includes working with children from 3-18, adult soccer (U99), and grassroots level all the way to performance level, most of my coaching experience has been working with University/College level athletes, both male and female. Additionally, I have experience working with hard to reach groups and disabled athletes.

I have gained a range of invaluable qualities that include great time management and punctuality, excellent patience, problem-solving skills, working efficiently under pressure, and effective communication skills. One of my strongest points is having a way with people, I definitely consider myself a ‘people person’. I consider myself outgoing and very easy to get along with. I have a bubbly character with a great sense of humour!
