My learn to swim journey began in All Saints School with Glasgow City Council. I then swam at the Glasgow School of Sport at Bellahouston Academy & City of Glasgow Swim Team as a developing age grouper after beginning my club journey at Scotia, in Bishopbriggs.
Going on to have a professional career; travelling around the world, competing & winning medals at every level of international competition was incredible & I feel very lucky and grateful to be launching our own Swim Academy, it really is ‘ours’.
I’ve always had an incredible amount of support from the people of Glasgow & this is a fantastic opportunity for me, along with an amazing team, to pour knowledge & resource into making a positive change in developing astute young athletes.
I progressed through the learn to swim framework in Glasgow, I was schooled in Glasgow, progressed & developed my swimming to professional level all before leaving my home city. I feel very strongly that being a product of the system gives me an amazing opportunity to improve & enhance the learning of the young swimmers here in Glasgow.
Now, having transitioned out of competitive sport, I can pinpoint key areas in my swimming journey that helped me progress & excel. I’m extremely passionate about providing a real learning platform to develop curious, self-aware, responsible young people through the sport of swimming.
Thanks for all your support throughout my competitive career & it’s valued now more than ever as we work together, as a team, to improve how young people develop multi-faceted skills through sport! Thank you!
