My goals in sports nutrition
I hope to develop my sports nutriton knowleadge though this course and encorporate it into my private practice.

My own sporting background
I have always had a keen interest in sport and I love keeping myself fit through surfing, triathlon and hockey. I don't do much cometitive sport these days but in the past have represented my county (Lancashire) for both swimming and hockey and played on the North England and Great British Colleges hockey teams.

My favourite sporting moment or heroes
My sporting hero at the moment is the Aussie surfer Kieren Perrow. I love him!

My favourite foods
I LOVE all food. YUM. Couldn't pick a favourite, it really depends on my mood...but I do eat alot of eggs.

Other things of interest about me
My husband and I are leaving the UK in the middle of next year to take a few years out to develop our surfing. This means I will be sitting next years examination in sunnier climbs!
