I joined the YMCA in February 2018 and have worked in education for almost ten years. After completing a degree in Physical Education, followed by a PGDE, I began my teaching career as a Sports Lecturer in a Sixth Form College before venturing to South Africa to work with underprivileged children. My role with the YMCA involves both overseeing, and delivering, a range of sports based vocational qualifications to young people aged 11-18 years.
