I have worked at Doncaster College and University Centre Doncaster since 2007, having previously worked in the health and fitness industry for around 10 years. I began my professional career as a fitness instructor with Living Well Health Clubs, having developed an interest in sports physiology and psychology a few years earlier whilst training for the London marathon. I then became self-employed as a Personal Fitness Trainer and Swimming Instructor. I later spent four years as an Exercise Physiologist with BUPA Wellness, performing a wide range of health screening tests including blood sampling and exercise stress testing. I have also worked for ProZone, the sports analysis company, covering England rugby union throughout their successful 2003 World Cup build up and tournament campaign.
I am currently studying for a PhD through Leeds Metropolitan University under the supervision of Professor Richard Light, a world-leading researcher in the area of sports coaching. My area of focus is the life-long development and education of elite professional sports coaches. I am focusing in particular on the differences in development of English and Australian rugby league coaches, with the support of the Rugby Football League, the sport’s national governing body.
