I am a Clinical Psychologist and an England Boxing Level 1 Coach.

Favourite Boxer: 

Katie Taylor. I love that she is a quiet and humble person, but when she gets into the ring she destroys her opposition and is a truly inspirational fighter!

Favourite way to look after myself:

I am someone with a lot of energy and a very busy brain, so I go boxing or running to help calm down my mind and chill me out.

I'm an elite level amateur boxer for Miguel's ABC, and a GB Boxing Awards Tutor.

Favourite boxer:

Katie Taylor because she's got the whole package  - long range, close range, angles, head movement; whatever a fight needs she can pull it out of the bag!

Favourite way to look after myself:

When I'm in need of rest and recovery I swap out a training session for a light swim followed by a hot chocolate!

I’m am currently studying MSc Forensic Psychology. I’ve competed in athletics, and am excited to build my boxing skills.

Favourite boxer:

I feel obliged to say Richard ‘The Secret’ Williams as he is family and introduced me to boxing. However, Muhammed Ali is a favourite because of how he used his platform to make a change.

Favourite way to look after myself:

I love music, it always makes me feel good. Also, spending time with friends and family or reading a good book.
