Head Coach, Senior Women's Squad

Exeter University Boat Club

Multi-Lane Endorsed Umpire

West of England ARA

I am a coach for Exeter University Boat Club. I am also a British Rowing multi-lane endorsed umpire, currently based in the West of England ARA.

I started as a cox at Abingdon School in 1998 before moving to Grey College, Durham University in 2003 when I started coaching. After 4 years coaching the men and women and being Head Coach as well as Captain of Boats, I moved to Thames Rowing Club in 2007 where I coached the women's novice squad for a year before moving to Reading Rowing Club in 2008. I began coaching the women's squad for 3 years, spending time as Head Coach of the Women's Squad, then moved across to the senior men's squad, taking over as Head Coach for the 2013/2014 season. I returned as Head Coach of the Women's Squad for the 2015/2016 season before moving to Exeter and started coaching for Exeter University Boat Club. I am also the entries secretary for Reading Amateur Regatta. I was also the Head Umpire for Reading Small Boats Head, having previously been the organiser of the event, which takes place in October of each year. I also started up Reading Rowing Club's Row for Gold event, which aimed to provide a fun introduction to rowing to those who have never tried it before.
