Gym Manager, Personal Trainer, Class Instructor


Originally from Oban with a lifelong interest in sport, health and fitness. Played football from a very early age until 2016 among other sports. Worked in the fitness industry for over 8 years in a variety of settings. Graduated from the University of Stirling in 2016 with BA Hons Sports Studies and began working at the Academy of Sport & Wellbeing, Perth College since it opened in 2017.
Influencing positive physical activity experiences whilst encouraging long term adherence to exercise is a huge part of my focus as a Personal Trainer and Fitness Instructor.
