Born in Sevenoaks, Kent on 17 January 1990, I grew up in Tonbridge and started doing athletics at my local club, Tonbridge AC, when I was 11.  I tried different events and, as my sister did race walking, I tried that out about a year later and I've been race walking since.

In 2009 I made my junior debut as a Team GB athlete and also won a scholarship to study BSc (Hons) Sports Performance at Leeds Metropolitan University and train full time at the National Race Walking Centre.  I've since completed a post graduate certificate in Sports & Exercise Nutrition and am a qualified trampolining coach and sports masseur, so I do some freelance massage work to help support myself.
