Youth & Community Coach - East Lothian
I joined Street League in 2020 after working for 8 years as a tennis coach. During this time, I worked closely with individuals suffering from chronic illnesses. After seeing the positive impact that sport can have on a person’s mental and physical wellbeing, I became passionate about using sport as a form of rehabilitation. This passion led to me earning a BSc (Hons) in Sport and Exercise Physiology and then in 2019 earning a MSc in Clinical Exercise Science from Edinburgh Napier University. I also worked briefly as a personal trainer before joining Street League.
My favourite sport is tennis and I’m a massive Nadal fan. At the weekends, I enjoy going to Tynecastle to watch Hearts, where I have been a season ticket holder since I was 7.
Working for Street League is one of the most rewarding jobs I’ve ever had. Getting to know and help the young people that we work with is a privilege and seeing their journey throughout the academies makes every day exciting.
