“I really couldn’t do my job without biology – an in-depth knowledge of the human body and the health implications of physical activity”
I coordinate volunteers, coaches and teachers in delivering extra-curricular sports programmes for all the additional support needs schools in Aberdeen City.
I get more kids more active more often, outside of their PE lessons. This includes delivering sports sessions, running festivals and linking interested participants to local clubs.
Being able to work with children every day. Getting children active and healthy is something that is very important to me. Even during my time at the University of Aberdeen I voluntarily coached basketball in evenings and weekends, and worked at the university sports camps during the holidays.
I studied Sport and Exercise Science at university. My in-depth knowledge of the human body and the health implications of physical activity are very useful in discussions around why children should be active.
I was always into science, maths and sport at high school, and had a passion for coaching kids. I was looking for course that would combine all of these things and decided on Sport and Exercise Science.
