I began practicing hoop at 36 having never done any type of aerial or much sport before. Since then, I have trained in sling, silks and trapeze. I have been teaching for nearly three years and am trained in aerial hoop, grounded hoop, aerial sling, strength & conditioning and stretching & flexibility for aerial.
Outside of work I enjoy running, trapeze, yoga and rowing and have just started paddle boarding too. I love animals and enjoy spending time with my house rabbit Cottontail! I’m a collector of plants and a massive Beatles fan. I am also a reservist with the Royal Air Force.
I am passionate about teaching children and enjoy seeing the confidence they get and how much they enjoy and progress. With adults I’m passionate about spreading the message that anyone of any age and ability can do aerial. I love seeing how surprised, happy and amazed people are after a lesson, realising they can do more than they assumed they could.
