Glasgow is home to my swim journey, where I was schooled, progressed through the Learn to Swim framework and developed to a professional level all before leaving my home city!
I started out in All Saints School with Glasgow City Council, swam at the Glasgow School of Sport in Bellahouston Academy and City of Glasgow Swim Team as a developing age grouper, after beginning my club journey with Scotia in Bishopbriggs.
Throughout my professional career; travelling all over the world, competing and winning medals at every level of international competition, I always had an incredible amount of support from the people of Glasgow. I feel very humbled and grateful to be launching our own Swim Academy in the city where it all began for me and alongside an amazing team, to have the opportunity to share everything I’ve learned along the way and give back to swimming, by creating a similar experience for developing young athletes.
Being a product of the system, gives me the platform to improve and enhance the learning of young swimmers here in Glasgow. Having transitioned out of competitive sport, I’m able to pinpoint key areas in my swim journey that helped me to progress and excel. I’m extremely passionate about providing a learning environment to develop curious, self-aware, responsible young people through the sport of swimming.
Thank you for all the support I’ve received throughout my competitive career, and it’s valued now more than ever, as we work together to improve how young people develop skills for life through sport!
