Running is my passion! I’m now at the stage where I almost depend on running. Nothing in the world beats that endorphin release it gives you – Nothing!

Very few things are sweeter in life than a PB. I know these days will eventually come to an end but for now, I’m enjoying this journey...


My own running journey has taken me to heights I never thought imaginable, including the journey to becoming a run coach. I want to help you achieve your running potential with my data-driven approach to run coaching! My coaching philosophy emphasises injury prevention, nutrition, mental resilience, and recovery - a holistic approach ensures a well-rounded and successful running journey. Let’s get started and redefine what you thought possible in your running adventure!

I’m a running coach who is passionate about helping individuals find balance in their lives while pursuing their fitness goals. As someone who has experienced the struggles of managing a full-time job, a busy social life, and personal fitness, I understand the challenges of juggling it all and can help you to integrate fitness into your life without missing out on the things that matter to you.

Whether you’re starting your journey on a ‘Couch to 5k’ or reaching for a sub 2:30 marathon (and everything in between!) I can bring the expertise and experience to help you achieve your goals. I’ve been teaching and coaching Athletics for over 20 years now (which makes me feel old!) but my love for running burns as bright as ever and I’m really excited and honoured to be joining the Best Athletics team!


The most important part to me is to set you a plan that will find the right balance between progression, overload and rest, so that you’re in peak condition and injury free come race day. I will guide you through the different pace sessions you will need to improve your lactate threshold and help you be disciplined and consistent in building the easy pace miles that will strengthen your aerobic system…the perfect combination to improve your overall speed and endurance!

Running is: The connection with people and places. The adventures. The challenges. The highs. The lows. The setbacks. The PBs. The freedom. The community. The sense of belonging. My fire. I can't wait to share my passion for the sport and the club and be a part of your running journey!


For me, it’s the benefits of the process of working towards these goals that is the real Nirvana of running. I believe that running is so much more than just a sport. Having always focused on team sports, including Rugby and Cricket, I’ve now been running for over 6 years.

The pure love to move one foot after the other has led me to develop into a running coach for Best Athletics. Nothing else in the world makes me feel as alive and invigorated as running does. Running allows me to feel grounded in times of uncertainty, challenges me to be tough when I am feeling weak and takes me to places I never thought I could go. Running is what fills me with joy, keeps me smiling and keeps me positive. For anyone looking for a holistic, wellness based approach to training I’m ya gal.

As a running coach, I am committed to helping others uncover their own potential and surpass their limitations. In particular, I specialise in trail running and ultra distance coaching, where the power of endurance and the beauty of nature intertwine. However, I don't limit my coaching to experienced runners alone. Whether you're a beginner taking your first strides or a seasoned veteran seeking a new challenge, I bring a holistic approach to every individual's plan, tailored to their goals and aspirations.

So, join me in this remarkable pursuit. Let's tread upon the trails, breathe in the wilderness, and embark on a transformational running journey together. It's time to unearth the extraordinary within and unleash the power of our bodies, minds, and spirits.
