I am a passionate storyteller and marketer with over 20 years’ experience helping some of the world’s leading brands connect with their communities.
2018 is a year of change for me as I say farewell to a fulfilling career in marketing to pursue my passion for fitness and wellbeing.
At the heart of my decision is my desire to motivate and inspire others to lead healthier, happier lives, not to mention the ambition to wear “lycra” to work every day!
I am a keen runner taking part in regular running challenges, many of which have been for charity. I also have a love of exploring and experiencing different countries, cultures and cuisines.
My passion for running has seen me take part in more than 35 half marathons, marathons, trails and ultras, around the UK, Europe and further afield. Running is not only my favourite way to stay fit, it’s my moment to be mindful, it’s how I process things and come up with new ideas. It has also introduced me to new people and new places, and is the source of so many of my most treasured memories.
I am a member of my local running club – the BeaRCat Running Club – a lovely club that is based out of my local pub – The Turk’s Head in St Margarets, Twickenham, and run by the truly inspiring Caitlin Limmer.
To complement my running, I recognise the importance of building full body strength and interval training to not only improve as a runner, but to mitigate injuries.
In 2018 I solidify my love of fitness by qualifying as a fitness instructor and personal trainer (Level 3 Diploma). And in the company of two fabulous business partners, I’m looking to turn this into a new career and way of staying fit and healthy.
