Biography

I am employed as the Programme Leader for Sport Development with Physical Education. I teach on a number of courses but my main teaching area is in sport/physical activity and health, with my focus being the Health & Wellbeing route through our current degree programme and our Sport & Nutrition for Health programme. I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, an alumnus of the BA (Hons) Sport Development with PE course, and have an MSc in Sociology of Sport and Exercise from the University of Chester.

I am a steering group member of the North West Health and Physical Activity Forum and I was a member of the Wirral Physical Activity Commissioning Board.

I love creative and innovative thinking and all things Disney. I own a VW T2 campervan.

My research/scholarly activity interests include sport and health policy, sport development processes and their use in the context of health, figurational sociology in sport and health, e-learning, technology and social media.
