My background is in Sports Science; I have interest and experience in physiology, anatomy and improving physical performance through exercise and nutrition. I achieved a BSc (Honours) Degree in Sport Science and Physical Geography and subsequently completed a PGCE which has enabled to me to work as a Further Education Lecturer. This allows me to deliver educate, support and impart knowledge in these subject areas. I develop resources, write academic papers and lecture on these areas.
I have a particular interest in promoting healthy lifestyle and wellbeing and I have created a wide range of copy from guides on improving health and well-being, developing diet and exercise programmes and produced content on weight loss, living a healthy lifestyle and am able to tailor this to any audience commercial or individual, from developing marketing and corporate literature for gyms as an example or for feature in publications that specialise in healthy lifestyle.
Working in a counselling capacity I have completed a plethora of courses and am an effective Life Coach and can provide guidance and support on issues surrounding Mental Health and Mindfulness and I have prepared sessions for guidance and resources on this. This also gives me additional authority for any pieces I write as I am able to set the correct tone in line with the publication to ensure that the advice and guidance is suited to the audience or is suitably motivating and inspiring. I have been part of developing events surrounding these issues in particular summer school projects in encouraging children to be active.
As a keen promoter of mindfulness, I enjoy travel and as part of my academic career I studied Physical Geography, to enable me to indulge partaking in expeditions around the work including Mount Etna and Stromboli in Italy, surveying the structure of each of these highly active volcanoes. Therefore, I am uniquely placed to comment on travel pieces with technical information if required and I have a detailed understanding of the country that I am required to write on, these can be interesting and unique additions to any travel piece, particularly when advising places of interest to visit for an example. I have worked on projects such as improving water supplies for the people of Ugandan villages. Throughout all my travels I have documented the journey and have created travel diaries/blogs.
Through developing information in different forms, whether as a ghost writer or my own blogs or in the capacity of the roles that I have previously referred to, my motivation has been spurred on. I wish to be able to make Freelancing my primary role, therefore I am joining PPH to grow my profile and to be able to use my experience, knowledge and skills on a range of projects to demonstrate my effectiveness and to be able to engage with a range of projects and audiences to have the freedom to indulge in my passions and utilise my wide ranging skill set.
I am an effective multi tasker and juggle multiple deadlines and priorities on a daily basis and responding to the differing needs of the wide range of stakeholders’ I engage with in my daily responsibilities. I prepare and deliver reports regularly, analysing data and making best recommendations. I have a range of projects that I have worked on, some of which cannot be displayed due to the confidential nature of the subject matter however I am able to comment for any proposals I submit or invitations I receive if I have completed such work and can give general
I am featuring examples of the type of work I can complete whether it is authored or ghost written and the nature of the websites or publications they can be featured on. I am in the process of collating examples to be displayed on my portfolio as I gain permission.
