Outdoor Swimming Professional
Spending all my childhood summers in a river, the sea or messing around at the bottom of a pool, my affinity with water is strong. After entering my first open water swimming event in 2015, I became hooked, specialising in long-distance endurance swims, swim adventures and cold water shenanigans.
In 2018, I upgraded my swimming teaching qualifications to open water. In 2020, I added a health and wellbeing coaching qualification to the mix because that's the focus of my coaching.
I'm also a freelance writer. I bring together my passion for outdoor swimming, wellbeing, women's health and body image in my roles as lead features writer for Outdoor Swimmer magazine and Content and Copy for body-positive sustainable swimwear brand Deakin & Blue.
