With a peer support provide specialist girls and boys specific racing focused sessions each month focused on up and coming events.
I work full time as a nurse manager but specialise in nurse education in the work place and have PTTLS, CTTLS and DTTLS teaching qualifications.
Outside Work & Cycling
I have a personal interest in sports psychology and dietary requirements to compete at the highest levels.
My personal goal with young riders is to develop cyclist for life and to help and support them in acquiring their potential. My sessions have a progressive focus and designed to be fun. This I believe will provide the motivation to get the miles in to meet their goals.
